Overview

The November 22, 1963, assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy shocked the nation and the world. The brisk investigation of that murder conducted under the guidance of Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren distressed many observers, even though subsequent careful investigations have been unable to find much fault with the conclusions his commission drew, the central one of which was that the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted alone. Instead of satisfying the public, one result of the Warren Commission Report was that an unimaginable number of plausible conspiracy theories were bruited about, and these have supported a sizeable publishing mini-industry ever since. In making this movie, director Oliver Stone had his pick of supposed or real investigative flaws to draw from and has constructed what some reviewers felt was one of the most compelling and controversial political detective thrillers ever to emerge from American cinema. Long before filming was completed, Stone was fending off heated accusations of artistic and historical irresponsibility, and these only intensified after the film was released. In the story, New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison Kevin Costner is convinced that there are some big flaws in the investigation of Oswald Gary Oldman, and he sets out to recreate the events leading up to the assassination. Along the way, he stumbles across evidence that a great many people had reason to want to see the president killed, and he is convinced that some of them worked in concert to frame Oswald as the killer. Among the suspects are Lyndon Baines Johnson the next president, the CIA, J. Edgar Hoover, and the Mafia. Over the course of gathering what he believes to be evidence of a conspiracy, Garrison unveils some of the grittier aspects of New Orleans society, focusing on the shady activities of local businessman Clay Shaw Tommy Lee Jones. Garrison's investigations culminate in his conducting a show trial that he knows he will lose and which he is sure will ruin his career in order to get his evidence into the public record where it can't be buried again. This movie won two of the many Academy Awards for which it was nominated: one for Best Photography Robert Richardson and the other for Editing Joe Hutshing.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Few films in recent decades have inspired as much controversy as Oliver Stone's provocative 1991 drama concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the whirlwind investigations that followed it. Stone, whose obvious infatuation with Kennedy borders on blind hero-worship, makes real-life New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison played by Kevin Costner the focal point of his three-hour epic. Garrison's conviction that Kennedy's murder was the product of a sinister government conspiracy became an obsession that eventually dominated his every waking hour, sullied his reputation, alienated his family and, finally, made him an object of ridicule. To Stone's uncritical eyes, however, he's a true-blue American hero, and the film reflects that bias. Crammed with historical detail -- some of it of dubious accuracy -- and peopled with such outstanding talents as Sissy Spacek playing Garrison's long-suffering wife, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Bacon, Donald Sutherland, Gary Oldman, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, and Ed Asner, JFK crackles with energy and, despite its excessive length, never becomes boring. Is it the fever dream of an unreconstructed conspiracy theorist or a chillingly accurate portrayal of events the American people willingly swept under the national carpet? That's up to you to decide. Stone makes his case in a running commentary for the DVD, which also includes previously deleted scenes that added another 15 minutes to the film's running time.
All Movie Guide
Despite criticism from historians and conspiracy buffs alike, Oliver Stone's docudrama JFK provides its audience with a highly controversial and thought-provoking depiction of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the assassination of America's 35th president. Centered around New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison's (Kevin Costner) personal investigation into the links between businessman Clay Shaw (Tommy Lee Jones) and presumed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary Oldman), JFK is as much a director's crusade as it is a landmark in raising public consciousness. After JFK's unprecedented box-office success and eight subsequent Oscar nominations, the United States government felt enough pressure to unseal the secret files related to the assassination -- a first in Hollywood/federal government relations. The problem is that Stone neglected factual consistency in the name of making a point. Many of Garrison's statements and various aspects of the conspiracy as presented in JFK are entirely false or based on precarious speculation. JFK is a double-edged sword for Stone, who was simultaneously rewarded and punished within the Hollywood system for tackling such a sensitive subject. However, with regard to the unarguably imaginative editing, JFK remains a spectacular achievement in film. Often lost amongst criticism is the existence of as many frighteningly irrefutable facts as creative liberties. This, combined with an all-star cast, beautiful cinematography, and disturbing archival footage, makes JFK a must-see for anyone interested in John F. Kennedy and the underbelly of the American government.

    A MASTERPIECE!

    This is truly one of the most controversial films of the 90's. Oliver Stone not only stirs the audience but he also stirs the media. It is a shame that one of the most creative minded filmmakers ever gets blasted by the media for such splendid motion pictures. JFK has all the right components for a truly brilliant film. Great acting, superb direction, and a mesmerizing screenplay. The Oscar-winning photography and editing are also major assets to three time Oscar winner Oliver Stone's exceptional and unforgettable masterpiece.

    Wonderful

    This is a beautifuly done movie and is extremely convincing, especially after watching the special features on the DVD. I would recomend it to anybody. But don't sit down and expect to watch it in one go, it is of an exceptional length, however those who have seen it would never complain about that aspect, as it is all necessary and interesting.
