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.

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

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