Movie Info

For years, millions have speculated and countless tomes have been published that attempt to make sense of the enigmatic details surrounding the late-1963 assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The Warren Commission aside, many now believe that the events of that terrible day were in some way linked to a sweeping underground conspiracy. Now, with his documentary RFK Must Die: The Assassination of Bobby Kennedy, historical researcher and filmmaker Shane O'Sullivan makes a similar case regarding the shooting death of Robert F. Kennedy at the hands of crazed assassin Sirhan Sirhan at the Ambassador Hotel in June of 1968. Despite repeated implorations in Sirhan's notebooks which demanded the death of RFK, several unanswered questions linger regarding that day -- such as the reasons behind Kennedy's forced relocation to a different site at the hotel, the identity of a mysterious young woman spotted fleeing from the hotel and shouting, "We shot him!," the fact that some involved bullets were never submitted as evidence, and the motivation for a CIA presence at the Ambassador. Via archival footage and probing interviews, O'Sullivan uses his documentary to begin to sort out this mystery.

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Like a dog unleashed in a field full of rabbits, he chases one shard of "evidence" after another - a second gunman, a girl in a polka-dot dress --without bothering to arrange them in any coherent pattern.

Shane O'Sullivan's RFK Must Die is more of a conspiracy-query doc, but will titillate the suspicious nonetheless.

Thin gruel, indeed.

Film Journal International

O'Sullivan's propositions are compelling enough to make you think that the truth is still out there.

Slant Magazine

Wearing many hats in building his formidable case, the filmmaker as incidental lawyer and investigator deciphers the crime scene photos, and pegs known CIA assassins inexplicably loitering there, responsible for covert government murders around the world.

It'll be an odd viewer who doesn't come to the end of the film wanting to know more about Kennedy or his untimely passing.
