Sobre la película

“Bobby” recrea una de las noches más trágicas de la historia de los EE.UU. El film sigue la evolución de 22 personajes ficticios en el hotel Ambassador de Los Ángeles, la víspera en que el senador Robert F. Kennedy (Dave Fraunces) fue asesinado. Mostrando las diversas experiencias de gente corriente, la película conmemora el espíritu de un hombre extraordinario y sirve como instantánea de aquel momento tan emblemático de la historia.

Bastante irregular. La película pretende ser el retrato coral de una época pero se queda en el camino y termina lastrada por bastantes tópicos y lugares comunes. Eso sí, el reparto es espectacular y la historia va de menos a más.

7.5

"The death of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968 marked the end of a certain type of idealism in American politics. In trying to translate the power of what Kennedy meant to so many people into a compelling film, writer-director Emilio Estevez has exceeded his reach with the historical drama "Bobby." Set on the day leading up to the assassination of RFK at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, the film weaves together the stories of 22 fictionalized characters tangentially linked to that event with archival footage of the late senator as he campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination. In the process, Estevez draws some rather obvious parallels between the Vietnam era and present-day social and political conflicts."

Kenneth Turan de Los Angeles Times

6.0

"The film´s high concept is to imagine the lives of all the little people at the Ambassador on that fateful night - guests, employees, politicos - spear-carriers on the stage of history who were to be sprayed with blood, literally as well as figuratively, when the terrible shots were fired. Laurence Fishburne plays a chef; Freddy Rodriguez is a busboy; Demi Moore is a desperate, alcoholic lounge singer; William H. Macy is the hotel manager; Anthony Hopkins is the retired doorman who keeps hanging around the place, and many more. Various contemporary themes of race, injustice and the Vietnam war are laboriously aired, along with huge amounts of newsreel footage, all bland and celebratory, and very unlike Oliver Stone's JFK. There is no question of a conspiracy - a relief, probably - but Estevez's picture is just so piously lacking in anything remotely subversive or challenging, and does not attempt to intuit a mood of fear or anger or paranoia in the American air."
