Michael J. Bader

Contributing to a special issue devoted to commentaries on Oliver Stone's controversial movie JFK, Rogin argues that Stone's narrative exploits and expresses underlying homosexual anxieties. Rogin shows that the homosexual subplot involving Clay Shaw, David Ferrie, and Willie O'Keefe actually fuels the entire story and is not separable from the political conspiracy narrative. Through a textual analysis of several scenes and published interviews with Stone himself, Rogin attempts to show that the paranoid content of the film is related to homosexual anxieties.
