Director Oliver Stone is no stranger to biopics or documentaries covering the lives of influential or powerful people. He has looked in the lives of Vietnam veteran and political activist Ron Kovic in "Born On The Fourth Of July"; Jim Morrison, the lead singer of "The Doors"; mil...

Please note that this review is over the director's cut of the film, clocking in at about 205 minutes.
Everyone knows John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated, but the case was never open and shut from the beginning, and with this film, Oliver Stone hoped to show that. What we ...

The reviews for this film are very good, but I still believe it's a little underrated. The factuality of it is not complete, but believe it or not, this film is still being used to solve the conspiracy.

Fearless, extremely dedicated look on the assassination of John Kennedy and whether it was a government conspiracy. Even if you think the plot is preposterous when you first hear of it, you can't helped but get sucked in the way this movie is done. Costner's awesome performance a...

In terms of effective storytelling, this is Oliver Stone‚??s greatest achievement. The amount of research, time and energy that went into this movie really shines through. It‚??s not just an erroneous conspiracy theory, but a highly justified examination of our government and mis...
