The Best JFK Documentary Ever!
18 March 2006 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

A remarkable remembrance of those dark days in Dallas. The severity of the happening, the ultimate chase, the political infighting and the resultant mistakes in judgment all go to explaining how very human and frail such an event quickly becomes. While one tends to blame the Dallas authorities for what was thought to be an alarming malfeasance, these personal memories and juxtapositions help those who weren't there understand more about how such a momentous event could have occurred. Oddly enough, those who DID see and feel that weekend agree almost 100 percent that Oswald and Ruby were lone perps. It's stark, but it's honest. Not like Oliver Stone's opportunistic "JFK."
