Good quality documentary
5 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First things first, this is NOT a film that focuses at all on 'Who shot JKF?'. There are no mad conspiracy theories, no discussion of 'magic bullets' or whether Jack Ruby was a secret mafia/KGB/Cuban/CIA/whatever agent.

This film does exactly what it says on the tin, focusing on the immediate aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, with particular emphasis on the Johnson's handling of the transfer of power and his relationship with Robert Kennedy during this difficult time.

Particularly fascinating is the confrontation in the corridor of Dallas hospital between the Secret Service and the local Texas police over the President's body, and where the autopsy should be held.

All in all, an excellent factual documentary shedding new light on an area of history too often the domain of fantasy films masquerading as history.
