After watching this movie I really change my opinion on Oswald for not killing John F. Kennedy yeah maybe he did do it but in the movie they showed really good and clever facts of what happen on that day. John F. Kennedy's assassination is on you tube and it is shocking, but in the movie they showed you an actually clip of he's death and this movie came out in 1991 and they was no you tube back then. the acting is brilliant with out no words and Kevin Costner shows that he is a great actor in this movie.

"JFK" was another well-done movie, but the book was far better.

Oliver Stone has always been a master of the conspiracy theories and this is his conspiratorial masterpiece. He weaves a collection of characters and ambiguous plot points together to craft an intriguing, albeit probably false, explanation for the JFK assassination. Costner blends into the background next to more bombastic portrayals from Pesci, Oldman, and Bacon.

"JFK" by Yojimbo

District Attorney Jim Garrison looks into the shooting of president Kennedy and finds so many discrepancies and loose ends he brings a criminal case to expose those who he believes were truly responsible. The quality of Oliver Stone's various projects has varied wildly during his career, but this conspiracy thriller based on that infamous event in US history counts as one of his best. Some of the "facts" are no doubt dubious at best, but what he does create is an intense and believable drama with the aid of a superb, generation spanning all-star cast. The investigation, although very wordy and convoluted, is a lot more involving than the likes of All the President's Men and the powerful courtroom recreation of the events of that day is absolutely fascinating. At a monumental 3 hours long ...

JFK review

Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner), a New Orleans District Atty., prosecutes Clay Shaw (Tommy Lee Jones) for being part of a conspiracy to assassinate the President with an accomplices Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary Oldman) and David Ferrie (Joe Pesci). One of numerous quotes I enjoyed since some lines were evident the history of my country: Jim Garrison - “The Mob wouldn't have the guts or the power for something of this magnitude. Assassins need payrolls, orders, times, schedules. This was a military-style ambush from start to finish... a coup d'état, with Lyndon Johnson waiting in the wings.” “That good triumphs over evil. But as we get older, we know this isn't true. Individual human beings have to create justice, and this is not easy because the truth often poses a threat to power and one oft...

A shooter from the grassy knoll??

JFK is a film directed by Oliver Stone that examines the events leading to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and alleged subsequent cover-up, through the eyes of former New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (played by Kevin Costner). Garrison filed charges against New Orleans businessman Clay Shaw (Tommy Lee Jones) for his alleged participation in a conspiracy to assassinate the President. Stone described his fictionalized film as a "counter-myth" to the "myth" of the Warren Commission. I have been a fan of Oliver Stone's ever since I saw Platoon. However I don't think Stone has ever been quite as brilliant as with JFK. It combines a great screenplay, cinematography and perfect performances from all the actors. I think Oliver Stone works best when he has a point to make ...
