Another facile whitewash, 23 April 2006
Author: mykencasey from Czech Republic

This film uses Stone's film as a punching bag, trying to fit a complex subject into an hour. It's a whitewash - not necessarily of the fact that a conspiracy existed, but that we don't know. Anyone who has examined the evidence knows that there are too many unanswered questions to land definitively on either side of the fence. But when a film shows one witness claiming that Kennedy's head wound was "clearly" suffered from the rear, it tells you all you need to know: look elsewhere for honest questions, honest answers. Stone's movie was flawed - most especially by its gratuitous addition of fictional elements which have never appeared in any of the serious challenges to the Warren Commission findings. (Donald Southerland's character, for instance) But Stone has always been the master of "bulldozer" cinema; that he would play with history for his own purposes does not diminish the very real likelihood that JFK was killed by a conspiracy.
