Movie Info

Here's a fictionalized account of Jack Ruby's perspective of the events leading up to his assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald. Danny Aiello appears convincingly as the nightclub-owner Ruby who (according to this telling) points the finger at an FBI conspiracy as the force behind the Kennedy assassination. The film includes some actual footage from Ruby's Oswald shooting.

Critic Reviews for Ruby

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

I have to admit that I was so completely in sympathy with Aiello right from the start that I paid no attention to the moral and aesthetic shortcomings of the film as a whole.

Amorphous and rambling, Rudy, about Kennedy's assassin, is no good, but it also has the misfortune of being released after Oliver Stone's JFK.

Ruby is a peripheral player in history, and the film can't change that.
