Movie-A-Day #326: JFK (1991).
President John F. Kennedy was assassinated 48 years ago today, an event that’s still deeply imprinted on the American psyche. Despite what the Warren Commission declared, Lee Harvey Oswald almost certainly did not act alone in killing the president. But exactly who else was involved and how has never been fully answered, even after years of careful analysis. It’s one of history’s great mysteries and always will be. Oliver Stone’s film “JFK” tries to fill in the holes with a mixture of fact and speculation. It may not be rigorous historical research, but it certainly is fascinating filmmaking.
