Most Enthralling Documentary I've Seen
22 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1987, 25 years after JFK's assassination. I had heard stories, seen it as a episode subject in 1960s based TV series, but I had never fully understood the impact of this tragedy until I watched this documentary. There is no narrator coldly leading you through the events of November 22, 1963. The first section of the documentary is mainly just footage; you are actually seeing what happened that day. You see Jack and Jackie at the breakfast in Fort Worth. You see the people present him with a cowboy hat he says he'll put on "Monday at the Whitehouse" and you laugh, until you realize he never made it back to the Whitehouse. You see the footage of Love Field and the drones of people that came out to see them. You watch as the motorcade moves through Dallas and then...the screen goes blank and eerily says 12:30 PM. You see the various newsflashes that broke that day as well as local Dallas new footage. I felt like I was alive in 1963. After watching this documentary, when I get into a conversation about JFK's assassination I have to remind myself that I wasn't alive. The first half of this documentary changed the way I view history. I hope it becomes a curriculum tool in schools across the country.
