"JFK: 3 Shots That Changed America"

I was 22 when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas and remember where I was when I learned what had happened, and remember watching Lee Harvey Oswald being assassinated live on television. Those events and the subsequent events shown in this remarkable documentary hold a vivid place in my memory. I understand that memory is a tricky thing ("Memories are interpreted like dreams." -Leo Longanesi) and for that reason watching this documentary was spellbinding.

I thought the lack of narration, especially in the first half, was a stroke of genius on the part of the film makers. I have my bias about whether there was a conspiracy in the President's murder. And to watch the events depicted in this film of the events of November 22, 1963, my feeling of conviction about the conspiracy was completely verified. To watch how quickly the Dallas Police gather evidence and draw conclusions about their certainty, while at the same time completely mishandling of the events of that weekend scream "frame-up." I didn't need any narration to explain what was happening and am grateful for the chance to relive so many of those moments with the advantage of hindsight.

I do not pretend to know who was responsible for President Kennedy's death. I would like to know before I go to my grave but alas I will not. Once again, I am grateful that this film is in the record just as I was when Oliver Stone released his "JFK." This injustice must not be forgotten.
