#1,428 JFK + Doc Martens.
by Erin Napier
I can’t stop watching all of the JFK stuff on TV right now. We finally got to see Parkland tonight (somehow it slipped right past us in the theatres) and I was devastated and fascinated all at once by it. Mama said it was an “all right” movie, but if you weren’t there to see it in real time it was really very revelatory. Parkland is definitely not for the faint of heart—there is more blood than most would care to see. But I found myself on the verge of tears twice—when Zapruder (Paul Giamatti) begs the Life Magazine correspondent not to show the frames of the actual fatal shot, “Please. For his dignity! It was an undignified end for a very dignified man!”
