December 20, 2016
While Stone has certainly stirred up the waters, with good conscience and, in JFK's own parlance, "with vigah," most people are likely to regard JFK as BS.

Sad to say, Oliver Stone's three hours of bombast did little to raise the level of discussion.
June 24, 2006
Stone goes for the gut, but the complexity of theories surrounding the Kennedy assassination might have benefited from a cooler assessment.

The film's insurmountable problem is the vast amount of material it fails to make coherent sense of.

As speculation, JFK is riveting. As proof, it's bunk. Stone has turned what he considers the crime of the century into a disturbing anomaly -- a dishonest search for truth.

For all its outlandish and preachy moments, Stone's movie is anything but boring.
