Over the decades, there's been so much propaganda on both sides of the JFK assassination argument, that it could be off-putting to anybody, especially the novice.
But the strength of RUSH TO JUDGMENT is it's timing, the period, coming just a couple of years after the assassination... True, as it was so early, not as much was known then--- but sometimes less is more; what you have here are just fresh, unpolished, unrehearsed, raw and chilling interviews with the witnesses at a time LONG before the whole topic had become the lost-in-time cliché it seems to now be.
The quiet simplicity, lack of pretense, the (then) newness of the subject-matter, and the flavor of the era drive home this documentary's point more effectively and convincingly--- and hit a far more macabre note --- than any thunderous, drum-beating entry today could possibly achieve.
