PODCAST: Oliver Stone’s JFK – 25th Anniversary [Electric Shadows]

Six months in the making, Episode 25 of The Electric Shadows Podcast is a special looking at Oliver Stone’s 1991 classic, JFK.

Over an epic running time almost matching the duration of the film itself, myself, Rob Daniel, and special guest Ian Bird dissect the merits and legacy of Stone’s controversial movie.

We also look at the assassination itself, plus it’s impact on popular culture, including the flawed, truth-seeking hero, that eventually led to Warner Bros. bankrolling the movie.

Our intrepid investigators also come up with a new conspiracy theory involving a beloved 1980s filmmaker and a Batman villain, while also making room for such pop JFK references as the film Executive Action and that episode of Quantum Leap. They also can’t help liberally quoting the movie’s chewable dialogue.

It’s a big listen for a big film. We like to think it offers some interesting new perspectives on the film, or at least a couple of laughs. Not least at that opening stab at an American accent…

So, pop in your headphones and prepare to go back… and to the left.
