If you had to pick just one film about the JFK assassination, this would be the one...
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most detailed & chilling documentary I've seen about the JFK assassination. A disturbing number of credible witnesses, as well as damning film footage & audio clips previously unavailable.

If anyone had any doubts that the Oliver Stone conspiracy "theory" film, 'JFK', was nothing but pure fiction, watch this series. (Be sure to see all 6 parts-- there are 4 available on 'Instant Watching', and the other 2 via mail.) As the film asserts, if it happened once, it can happen again. Suffice it to say that it was happening before and still is. One look at recent politics and we know that government cover-ups are alive & thriving.

The series rekindled my interest in the assassinations of both JFK & Bobby Kennedy, and compelled me to get some books on the subject, including 'Brothers' by David Talbot, which I'm really enjoying. It serves as a great companion to the documentary, further elaborating on all the points made by the film, and in great detail.
