Great - with the sound off!,
This review is from: Jfk: Assassination Files [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This excellent compilation of footage would be an indispensible addition to anyone's 'assassination' library.
It is - without doubt - the best and most useful thing that Robert 'Mr Conspiracy' Groden has ever done.
The digital 'clean-up' of much of this material is excellent and will allow the viewer to experience those harrowing and fleeting images in crisp detail.
The close-up and stabilisation - which Robert Groden continually refers to as 'Groden-Scoping' (?) - of the Zapruder film is outstanding.
The only down-side to this otherwise excellent DVD is Groden's commentary and analysis of the images. He sees 'mystery' and 'conspiracy' just about everywhere. I lost count of how many shots he describes as hitting the occupants of the presidential car.
Groden is a 'self-acclaimed' photographic expert, of course. In truth, he has no qualifications what-so-ever for the analysis of film or photographic mediums. He actually can boast no qualifications (professional or otherwise) in any field at all. Should the viewer doubt this, he should check out Groden's testimony at the O. J. Simpson trial when he was cross-examined. He took a bit of a pounding on the matter of his 'ability' and 'qualifications' there.
Still, with that said, the answer is simple: buy this DVD and always watch it with the sound turned off; the clips were all filmed without sound originally, of course. Make up your own mind what you are seeing.
