One of the most important Films ever?
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When one considers that the assassination of President Kennedy is one, if not the most important events of our countries history, then one must conclude that Rush To Judgement is definitely one of the most important Films. Mark Lane a New York Lawyer and former State Campaign Manager for President Kennedy takes his camera to Dallas shortly after The Warren Commission issued it's report on the assassination of President Kennedy. What he uncovers is what the Main Stream Media failed to report to the American people about the assassination. It was too hot for the Media, but not for Lane. Rush to Judgement is a true documentary filled with live interviews of the witnesses and the people closest to the truth about killing of our 35th President. This Black and White film will take you back to a time and place and let you hear what the witnesses said in rare interviews. Lee Bowers who worked the Rail Road Tower behind the infamous Grassy Knoll tells Mark Lane what he saw as the shots rang out. After the filmed interview with Lane and before the release of the film Mr. Bowers is found dead-Was it just an accident? Just a coincidence? No other work of film is as important to the history of the assassination as Rush to Judgement. The book sold over a million copies and the film is better than the book. If you have any interest in the subject make sure you see Rush to Judgement. It has the one Special Effect too few films has...The Truth.
