Great Summary of that Day
13 March 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Captures the frantic rush to the local hospital, the public chaos that ensued, the quickly mobilized manhunt by law enforcement looking for a suspect after witnesses identified the source of the gunshots as the Texas Book Depository, and the clash and confusion of media and authorities as Oswald is brought in for interrogation.

By the time this film was released, anyone interested in the JFK assassination probably knows all the facts, as well as 1,000 other facts that may or may not be important (depending on your point of view). Regardless, this does a great job of boiling everything down to just the one day -- both before and after -- and focusing on first-hand accounts.

I am no expert on JFK, but I think anyone who wants to know about his death and only has 90 minutes, this would be an excellent place to start. It really does cover all the basics of the situation.
