Storyline

In 1969 New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison prosecuted only trial for the murder of John F Kennedy. Although the defendant, Clay Shaw, was acquitted, he committed perjury and the central charge, that he conspired to murder the President in his role as a CIA operative was given added weight when after his death it was admitted by the CIA that he worked for them. Garrison's case was the basis for the epochal film JFK by Oliver Stone which did more than any other medium before or since to shatter the facade carefully constructed by the Warren Commission and its sycophants. This film, a labour of love for multiple Emmy Award winner John Barbour is a damning indictment of the American Media for its crucifixion of both himself and Garrison. Like everything else connected with this case you the truth is only told by the dedicated and the independent. John's film shows that the establishment media is neither. Written by briankelshaw1959

The Definitive Movie on the JFK Assassination and the Jim Garrison Investigation
11 June 2017 | by firstlorienSee all my reviews

This movie is the epoch of JFK assassination research. And we have John Barbour to thank for devoting a good part of his life to making sure the truth about New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation into the assassination of JFK is finally presented to the American public for the reality it was.

I have seen this movie twice, and both times I was moved to tears. Yes, tears... because Mr. Barbour has made THE DEFINITIVE JFK ASSASSINATION MOVIE which tells the truth about the coup d'etat that took place on 11/22/1963. And not just about the assassination, about the hubris, treachery and sadly, dumb compliance, of the Main Stream Media in the cover-up of JFK's murder.

Every man, woman and child should see this movie. That is how important it is. If nothing else, it will give you a glimpse into the complexity of the JFK assassination from Jim Garrison's point of view; where he spells out that it was a well orchestrated conspiracy involving many players and was covered-up at the highest levels of government.

If you were alive when the assassination took place, well, you will cry too. Because whether you like it or not, this movie will touch in you an emotion that can only be described as grief combined with sadness. These emotions tell us we have all been part of the subsequent assassinations and lies which have lead to the appalling situation we are in today as a country - the federal reserve, corrupt politicians, etc., etc.

If only we had raised our voices with Jim Garrison back in the late 60's as a nation, crowded New Orleans during the trial and demanded answers to JFK's murder - real answers - maybe we wouldn't be in the mess we are in today.

Again, this movie is so important it should be shown every year on 11/22 in every movie theater in the country, as well as used in schools to teach about the assassination of the last great president of the United States.

I only hope that everyone who sees this movie tells their family, their friends, their church, their community about its power. John Barbour has given us a tool to change the world going forward around the truth of the JFK assassination. He has given us the movie that will allow those of us alive after the assassination to redeem ourselves for being compliant.

Watch the movie, shed your tears of sadness, and thank a true patriot, John Barbour, for giving you this gift of redemption - the movie that we will use to educate all Americans and our future generations about the truth of what really happened to JFK, and our country, on 11/22/1963.
