Bobby

 

USA 2006, 120 minutes
Dir. Emilio Estevez
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period 1960s, Politics.

 

Aroview: In the sprawling, overlapping traditional of Robert Altman, dir. Emilio Estevez time capsules the hours leading up to Robert F. Kennedy's assassination in 1968 through a complex network of characters and events.

Based largely in the confines of the Ambassador Hotel where Kennedy was assassinated, this alternates between the dueling perspectives of hotel staff and guests, gathering steam as a melting pot of political and racial divides that mirrors current climates and world tensions. Although dragged down by the sheer number of narrative strains, Estevez handles the film’s threads with enough skill and investment that the scale of the scenario never outweighs the underlying history.
