Inconvenient truths are still true

An excellent compilation of interviews with surviving members of the Warren Commission staff and other investigators and witnesses. Conspiracy theories are addressed, including what some regard as a loose end -- was there a link between Oswald and organized crime figure Carlos Marcello? As a one-time advocate of the conspiracy school -- too many shady occurrences, right? Too many cover-ups by CIA and the FBI, no? -- I'm pleased and relieved that the men of the commission and the late former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi have diligently continued to present the facts and rebutted speculation and myriad conspiracy theories. I accept that there were men who hated Kennedy and perhaps some who were conspiring to kill him, but I also accept beyond a shadow of a doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald beat them all to the punch and acted alone on November 22, 1963. There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about "official" positions, but the Warren Commission's work should no longer be one of those reasons.

Findings, Facts, and Footage

IN A NUTSHELL Everyone seems to have their own theory about who really killed President John F. Kennedy. Vincent Bugliosi, author of Reclaiming History: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy is interviewed in the documentary and stated, "It's now the most complex murder case, by far, in world history. Nothing even remotely comes close." THINGS I LIKED: Great opening scene. You get to see lots of original footage of the time. The interviews include Co-Producers and Directors Todd Kwait andRob Stegman Featuring Howard Willens, Warren Commission Counsel and Staff Liaison Judge Burt Griffin, Warren Commission Counsel David Slawson, Warren Commission Counsel Ruth Paine, owner of the home where Marina Oswald lived in November 1963 Bernie Weismann, placed an article in Dallas Morning News, seeming to threaten the President Robert Blakey, Chief Counsel of the Chief Counsel and Staff Director, House Select Committee on Assassinations (1977-1979) Vincent Bugliosi, Assassination Expert (Reclaiming History), Charles Manson prosecutor Patricia Johnson McMillan, author of Marina and Lee David Robarge, CIA Historian Judge Brendan Sheehan, Kennedy Expert Judge Ellen Connally, Kennedy Expert and Historian Steve Barber, Acoustics Investigator You'll learn a lot of facts about the investigation and all of the people involved in it. Lee Harvey Oswald was claimed to have illusions of grandeur. He even named his diary Historic Diary. He wanted to do something significant and memorable with his life. Mission accomplished. Several common conspiracy theories are addressed and related to the facts and evidence found. The material is presented as both formal reviews and casual conversations with those associated with the investigations. Keep watching during the closing credits to see more video interviews. You can see some of the interesting lines from the film on my full review at Movie Review Mom YouTube channel and website.

"You can't handle the truth"

This documentary will be a disappointment for those still hypnotized by conspiracy theories. But it's one of the best and most informative documentaries on the JFK assassination ever done. It does not refute every conspiracy theory--Vince Bugliosi's magnificent book already did that. What it does do is get inside the investigation , Lee Oswald, and Jack Ruby better than any documentary so far. There are poignant moments with Ruth Paine, the devout Quaker who took in Marina Oswald and her troubled marriage--only to find that the husband had murdered the president of the United States. Highly recommended.
