Looks like an excellent move. Hard to watch. I remember the day clearly.

I just hope that, IF they mention any of the conspiracy theories, that it is just in passing and that they don’t focus on them. (Personally, I’m an advocate of the Oswald-did-it-by-himself-because-he-was-just-another-presidential-assassin-not-a-patsy angle, myself.)
If it’s a good movie, I’d love it if this movie turns out to supercede “JFK” as THE go-to about that day in November.

Yes, Kathy A: I agree. I like Oliver Stone but think he did America a great injustice by releasing “JFK” and giving a crazed DA a forum to sow doubt and mistrust.

Not having grown up in the USA, I’ve always looked on this from a few steps back, as a classic example of how conspiracy theories get started — big important events feel as though they should have big important causes.

I think conspiracy theorists are huge optimists: Our government is so powerful that no one could shoot the president unless they had a secret cabal backing them up. And there’s no way a couple of airplanes could knock down the World Trade Center, unless the president wanted it to happen.
