A chapter on a very thick book.

Lyndon Johnson gets a very sympathetic (while RFK does not) look from the most unlikely of defenders in liberal film maker Bob Reiner's LBJ. The grossly misleading title about this larger than life character however covers little of his career, deciding instead to zero in on the period around JFKs assassination, Johnson's ascendancy to the Presidency and passage of The Civil Rights Bill. It offers an interesting look at power play at the highest levels as Johnson intimidated to begin with by all the Harvard intelligentsia in the cabinet attempts to establish himself.

Woody Harrellson's LBJ passably captures the crassness and incertitude but fails to deliver the man in full that as Senate Majority leader bullied and cajoled members into line. There are flashes of the famed abrasiveness but they are far out weighed with a pouting, insecure LBJ huddling with Lady Bird. Anyone familiar with this man's public career know the material Reiner had in his arsenal to make an outstanding character study. Instead he only gives us a chapter of an incredibly controversial career when we are expecting a book. LBJ shortchanges.

There will be no compromise

The film starts on the day of the Kennedy assassination and then uses Johnson's rise to power as a subplot. Eventually they come together. The film concentrates on the passage of the Civil Rights Act and ignores everything else that happened during this time from Cuba to Vietnam. Woody Harrelson plays a colorful and slightly comedic LBJ. Bobby Kennedy (Michael Stahl-David) plays the main antagonist.

The film was an interesting behind the scenes drama of the workings of government. John Kennedy was the dreamer and LBJ was never expected to deliver.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Excellent Characterization of LBJ

I was a young nurse during assassination of Kennedy and the following Viet Nam war and remember the toll it took on LBJ as evidenced in his public appearances. Many years later when I moved to Texas I toured the LBJ Ranch. I believe Woody Harrelson and Rob Reiner did an excellent job portraying a complicated man. Although definitely not wholly complimentary, the strength of his character, his commitment to his country and his valuing of human rights through education and the expression of personal liberty did do justice to the man and his life.
