Very biased and anti-American view on the Kennedys.
30 May 2011 | by stuka24See all my reviews

Images are well chosen, you get to know some things that aren't obvious but the general feeling one gets while watching this "documentary" is how easy is to speak evil of a famous family. The narrator's beautiful voice relentlessly pounds the myth, their honesty, of course their morale, family values, creating a new myth, the "doomed" for tragedy.

The links of the Kennedys with the Mafia suggest a plausible if trite explanation for the two murdered brothers and Oswald. It's interesting in its scope, spanning about half a century, including pop music, fashion and ways of having fun.

Constantly ranting about how the K. didn't care enough for their family , being hypocritical and hiding skeletons in the closet, this "docuficiton" looses credibility by their lack of subtlety and objectivity. They don't even try. With a penchant for high sounding phrases like "black masses and drugs, everything was better than the banality of their destiny". It is true there are lots of tragic facts in their biography, but blaming all on Bob not being there enough as a father is simply outrageous. The end verges on melodrama, just what the authors probably would have sneered at in American movies.

Bobby, Joseph, Rosemary, Kathleen, and the two nephews, they all had their troubles, and this documentary gloats over it. Even if their grandpa were a gangster and Jackie went to bed with Bobby, I don't see why that would make the clan "doomed", as this piece of fiction suggests all the time. This thesis is so ludicrous is's almost funny, if we weren't talking about real people.
