Brilliant movie from director Oliver Stone about the assassination of John Kennedy, and the investigation that followed his death. Kevin Costner gives the performance of his career as the attorney who becomes obsessed with the case; he is convinced that there’s more to the assassination than the official story (a conspiracy maybe?). His final speech (which is 20 minutes long) hits all the right notes and is especially memorable. Long, demanding movie (just like any other Oliver Stone film), but completely absorbing and thought provoking (which makes it a must see). This can easily be ranked as one of the best movies of the 90’s. Watch it now, thank me later.
Fun fact: Oliver Stone regards this film as his “The Godfather”.
