Aroview: Oliver Stone's gripping, technically dazzling opus is both convincing propaganda and marvellous entertainment, with Kevin Costner leading a large and prestigious cast. Director's cut (206m.) also available with bonus doco BEYOND JFK (90m.).
Average rating (Good Enough). Showing 1-3 of 3 member reviews.
4 stars (Very Good) Made with a rhetorical passion that's near-sanctimonious, JFK is never subtle. But if some "facts" are dubious, and the form manipulative, it amounts to powerful impressionism: a compelling epic of '60s upheaval and All-American Paranoia.~fairbrother
2 stars (Good Try) There are plenty of documentaries available - this is a waste of film stock & only adds to the confusion about what happened. If we are to be condemned to a 3 hour dramatisation then the lead actor should at least be alive & not a drone.~tubbs
3 stars (Good Enough) Better to read a good and up to date book about the JFK assasination than watch this.Some facts are interesting but not really totally believable when you research this topic. A bit dated.~emjay
