An often extraordinary movie, not only in its technical prowess but also in the way Stone is able to combine historical facts with his own flights of fancy.

Even aside from what it's saying, and even with the many, many forced moments, JFK has a mad genius about it.

Despite the controversial and verbose nature of the material, not to mention lenghty running time, Oliver Stone's JFK is a riveting dramatizaition of various conspiracy theories regarding the Kennedy's assassination

...if you can forget some of the hyperbole, JFK comes off as a first-rate mystery thriller.

Stone goes for the gut, but the complexity of theories surrounding the Kennedy assassination might have benefited from a cooler assessment.

Looking Closer

A powerful, personal exploration of a complicated and crucial period in American history. Whether or not Stone gets all of his facts right, he raises very important questions.
