Conversation with my friend Meiyan (MY).

BB: Bobby’s not too bad. It’s just a bit long.
MY: Yes, I felt so bored at the front and the middle.
BB: So many actors. Frodo looks weird in the movie with Lindsay Lohan.
MY: But I like this couple’s story and the one about Samantha and her shoes. I can totally understand what women want.
BB: It’s by Helen Hunt.
MY: Her husband quite famous too right? Too many stories lah.
BB: Yah, not enough depth. The story did not pick up till the assassination of Kennedy. Not all the stories are good. Quite redundant.
MY: I don’t like the hair dresser. (Sharon Stone) But Demi Morre quite diva ah.
BB: Her boyfriend acting as the hippie drug dealer. Can’t even recognise him.
MY: Is it? Anyway, it all happened in a hotel. Wasn’t Kennedy killed in a car?
BB: That’s John F Kennedy. This one is the senator Bobby Kennedy.
BB: Anyway, can help me write something about this movie?
MY: Don’t want. I don’t know what to write.

BB: Me too...

Nonimated for Golden Globes Best Picture, Bobby is presented in a multi-narrative storytelling with contemporary issues set in the 1960s. It traces the assassination of Bobby Kennedy through interpersing documentary-styled footages and fictional acting (similar to The Queen in terms of technique). Boosting a stellular cast, it is a classic example of "too many cooks spoil the broth".
