Film Review

Intense and gravely serious, "Seven Days In May" tells the fictional story of a super-patriotic American General, a man named James Mattoon Scott (Burt Lancaster), who may, or may not, be plotting with others to overthrow the U.S. Government. Much of the plot, especially early-on, is veiled in secrecy and mistrust.An alert Col. Jiggs Casey (Kirk Douglas) first gets suspicious when references to horse racing are labeled top secret. Then he discovers that a mysterious organization called "ECOMCON" doesn't officially exist. Casey's suspicions turn to Scott, because Scott disdains President Jordan Lyman (Fredric March) as a liberal pacifist. In the early going, it's up to viewers to figure out whether this military coup d'etat is real or imagined.The film's dialogue is heavy laden with import. Characters speechify with feeling about nuclear war, Pearl Harbor, disarmament, and other weighty issues. There's almost no humor. The forceful rat-…

There have seven days to figure out what will happen on Sunday, May 18? You have 118 Minutes to figure out if an military coup d'état can happen in the United States of America. Directed by John Frankenheimer known for such works as the Manchurian Candidate comes a suspense and thriller on the possibly of a government overthrow. Seven Days in May is an American political thriller novel beautiful written by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey II which was published in 1962, during the height of the Cold War, and fears of New World Order bankers. It's been said that John F. Kennedy says it's one of his favorite book he even read and believed the scenario as described could actually occur in the United States… to the fact that it's clearly did happen. The generals at the time actually want to get into an shooting war in with the USSR during the Cuban Missile Crisis which Kennedy was against. The threat of a military coup was quite real. Many of the shots n…

A truly excellent film, one which has aged well and is still relatively timeless, and maybe even more fitting for present times based on tensions surrounding the current War on Terror, with hawks and doves alike looking to unseat the other and change the patterns of geopolitical interaction.As some reviewers have excellently summarized, the idea of a coup d'etat isn't terribly unlikely. One can look into the wealthy fascist elite that sought to overthrow Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s for a prime example, or one can read about the personalities of such Cold War hardliners like General Edwin Walker. In many ways, the film is an extremely accurate depiction of where the 60's were at (riots in the street, tensions between the Pentagon and the White House) and an extremely disturbing look at what could have happened had things manifested in such an ugly light.The most intriguing thing about this gem of a movie is the blessing it received from none other than the sitting Presi…
