The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald must have been a cathartic experience for the mostly amateur, local cast of this Texas production. Coming from the production house of Falcon International--home of schlockmeister Larry Buchanan--the film is an utterly serious attempt to give Lee Harvey Oswald a fair 'trial' in abstentia. The evidence presented in the film is an accurate reflection of many of the depositions taken by the Warren Commission, and one need not to subscribe to the Grassy Knoll theory or believe that CIA tramps killed JFK to believe that Oswald could have been acquitted. In fact one will learn more about the assassination from this film than from Oliver Stone's repulsive and inaccurate JFK. Sadly, the film cannot begin to approach Stone's level of artistry, as its rock bottom budget straps us in for 90 minutes worth of minimal acting in a minimal courthouse set. The camera barely moves, the actors barely emote, and the best part of the film is listening to a tape of the REAL Oswald during his infamous appearance on New Orleans radio on behalf of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee. For assassination buffs, this is an oddity that you shouldn't miss. Those looking for entertainment should turn elsewhere.
