a horror film in the truest sense, 23 February 2002
Author: blanche-2 from United States

This black and white documentary, so simple in its chronicling of President Kennedy's fateful trip to Dallas with his wife and the Johnsons, is absolutely devastating. The President is charming and funny and the trip is filled with local color such as residents singing Mexican music to the group - yet all the time, you know how it ends and you want to scream.

This film is a no-miss and if you get a chance to see it on History Channel, better yet, as they interview the director during the breaks.
