Superb Legal Documentary
14 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a landmark documentary for me for two reasons. First it introduced me to the legal maneuvering and brilliant mind of Gerry Spence, America's premier trial lawyer. If you have never had the pleasure of watching Mr. Spence in action, this is one of the few opportunities you get to watch a truly brilliant legal mind in action.

Secondly, this was filmed before Oliver Stone's JFK, and was the first documentary I had ever seen that raised serious questions about the assassination of John F Kennedy. These two factors, combined with the legal give and take between Spence and Vincent Bugliosi, make this well worth watching.
