Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

Let's discuss this next month when we discuss the MOVIES about him.

I particularly love the film adaptation of Stephen King's 11.22.63

A good series… a fantastic BOOK!!!!

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

There isn't a single movie about him that I liked.. JFK of course had to be fucked up by Oliver Stone, who takes the best subjects, and distorts them to delegitimize them. I guess he's still a "soldier", sent now to revise history. Jim Garrison was much more lively and funny than Costner, and he makes up so much bullshit, just like "The Doors"

Maybe "Seven Days in May" - chicanery at the federal level.

I'm happy to know that I am not the only one who thinks Oliver Stone's films suck.
What was he thinking, making Jim Garrison out to be this hero?

I liked Missiles of October.

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

I read 11.22.63 and loved it but I've not seen the mini series.

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

I love the book too. As Sadie says in the mini series, "The book is always better."


I didn't have Hulu when it aired, but later on, the DVD set came out in stores, I had to have it. A few things were changed, but I really don't mind. It was done well, and the cast was outstanding.
I hope you will get the chance to see it sometime.

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

I admire Jim Garrison, but I can't stand Oliver Stone

Do I have to SPELL THIS OUT????

I CAN'T STAND THE WAY IN WHICH OLIVER STONE PORTRAYED JIM GARRISON!

Did I make myself clear? I thought I did…

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

YOU AREN'T CLEAR AT ALL!

"What was he thinking, making Jim Garrison out to be this hero?"

And I'm telling you that I think Garrison was a hero.

"I admire Jim Garrison"

(What the hell got into you? Are you drunk?)

Re: Mort Sahl - The Kennedy Years

I wasn't drunk. I was perplexed.
Also preoccupied with other things.

Oliver Stone made Garrison out to be this upstanding wonderful family man with a mission. Garrison had other sides to him. He was nothing like that guy that Costner portrayed. That was all that I was saying.
Perhaps Hero was a poor choice of words since you feel that Garrison really was a hero. On that, I have to disagree with you.
I'm sorry I "shouted". I enjoy your posts. You bring up some interesting topics. Especially about film.
