he must have been on to something!
9 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the movie 'JFK' came out, everybody spent so much time bashing it, I had no clue what the plot was. Not long after after 'JFK' was released, I watched this on a movie channel, having no clue what this was about. I must admit, after seeing this, I have to really question the Warren Commission's findings. Almost everything that was said was documented. The people like Herald Wiseberg, and Fletcher Prouty were compelling. Then I saw 'JFK'! All of this lead me to do my own research into this, including watching 'The Men Who Killed Kennedy', by Nigel Turner.

Whatever you think happened to John Kennedy, see this, and I think you will agree that the Warren Commission was at least wrong!
