At best, a 3rd grade show and tell. At worst, insidious propaganda
2 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

This NG doc is a farcical attempt to discredit and disgrace the many eyewitnesses that confirm the fatal shot did come from the Grassy Knoll. Whereas dozens of people came forward after the shooting to claim they heard shots and saw smoke from the knoll, only a handful claimed all shots came from the book depository. The film never even CONSIDERS any viewpoints other than those on the corner of Elm & Houston street!!

I don't doubt there was someone in the book depository firing shots, but Holland tries to convince you he has definitive proof it was Oswald. Do we get that proof? Uh, sorry, even with HD, there is nothing beyond his opinion. Sadly, most of this hacked together mess is like that.

It amounts to nothing more than one man (and a die-hard believer of the lone assassin theory since forever, hardly an objective researcher) structuring and cherry-picking choice testimony and footage (most from the CIA, for god's sake!) to "prove" what he wants to believe. Perhaps the truth is too painful. A valid point, indeed. But why wouldn't you want to do a thorough job if you want to posit a new theory? This film has all the credibility and forethought of a 3rd grade show and tell session. That's "at best"..."at worst" it's an insidious piece of propaganda.

Max Holland still wants us to believe the fatal shot came from a decrepit bolt-action rifle. He doesn't discuss the many corroborated testimonies (many in the Warren report) that state there were more than three shots fired. He easily dismisses any shots coming from the Grassy Knoll, even though there is ample testimony to the contrary --- eyewitnesses who saw men with guns behind the fence in back of the knoll by the railroad yard (Lee Bowers, for one). Of course most of these witnesses conveniently suffered fatal accidents in the years following the incident or were discredited by the Warren Commission and the CIA.

In perhaps the most laughable omission --- the one referred to in the doc's title --- Holland tries to convince us that the first bullet hit a traffic light and then miraculously wound up by the freeway overpass where it grazed Tague. Huh, given his prior liberties with the facts I am shocked he mentions Tague at all. Once more, Holland offers zero proof of this theory. No evidence...just his opinion. Makes you wonder why this was made doesn't it? It's the perfect brainwashing session for the JFK nubie.

This flimsy, glossed-over account and ludicrous "recreation" goes to ridiculous attempts to scavenger evidence to fit Holland's fairy-tale guessing from dozens of other, more poorly made amateur films, none of which approaches the clarity of the Zapruder film. Holland supposedly mastered the Zap film in HD, but then never gives us a close enough look at it to really disprove the head shot didn't come from the knoll. It's not what he wants you to believe, so why expose that evidence? We might get confused, I guess.

Read the Warren Report. Read tons of more knowledgeable books by open-minded people who want to consider all the possibilities. Conspiracies do occur. Just read your history. Read anything. But don't waste your time on this I Wish the World was a Happy Totally Logical Place bull-crap.
