Important, "Must See" viewing.
31 May 2014 | by robert-259-28954See all my reviews

This was one of the most significant documentary films I've ever seen, ever. I've always had so many questions regarding the life of JFK, some accurate, but much missing. This incredible piece of filmmaking brought to light aspects of this great man that have increased my respect and admiration of this great president to levels that before I could not have imagined. Only now do I fully realize and appreciate the degree of courage he had facing down the most brutal powers of the 1960's, a decade of decision that not only formed the basis for the absolutely necessity of negotiation if public and international affairs, but a quality seemingly lost in politicians of this generation. Had the Military Industrial Complex of today been in power in Kennedy's day, we would have inevitably gone to war, an atomic conflict that would have destroyed every civilized country on earth. This is JFK's legacy, one for the ages.
