I was a very young student when JFK became president of the United States and though I was many thousands of miles away, like millions of others , I experienced a sense of despair when he was assassinated.
We had hoped for so much and suddenly it was all gone, brutally swept away in a seemingly senseless act.
Later, as the investigations ground on and the Warren commission ended in so much guff- despair turned to anger at the helplessness of ordinary people against the powerful forces that control society. I recall weeping then and as this film brought all that back so vivdly, I wept. again.
A wonderful film and a com[pelling testament to efforts of one man- Jim Garrison to discover the truth.

-> review ONLY for US digibook release: ASIN: B001DJ7PNW

I bought the Blu-ray released by Warner in the US (release date: November 11th, 2008; feature run time (24fps): 3 25'49" = director's cut, incl. 5'30" credit roll; Region free) because I wasn't quite satisfied with the picture in the 2-disc DVD set and wanted a better version of this movie.
Although this BD is no match for let's say "La piscine" or "The Dark Knight" (both Warner), I'm happy with this BD. Picture quality may vary (as do film stocks/sources), but in my view the upgrade from DVD to BD was well worth it (as watched on 46" screen).

Film: 9/10
Picture quality: 8.5/10
Aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (orig.)
Run time 24fps: 3 25'49" (director's cut, incl. 5'30" credit roll)

ST: GB;F
RC 0
Chapt.: 89

A brilliant DVD . A really Important account of American History. Really until Garrison came along nobody asked the questions of this clear Conspiracy which will probably never be solved to a satisfactory conclusion. Kevin Costner plays the main character superbly .

Edit: the blu ray upgrade provides significant audio visual enhancement & it also comes with the Beyond JFK: The Question of Conspiracy, which is a ninety minute documentary featuring original interviews and archive footage, which was only previously available in the UK as part of the two VHS set.

JFK, as if you didn't already know, concerns the story of real-life Louisana District Attorney Jim Garrison and his (ultimately unsuccessful) prosecution of Clay Shaw for conspiring in the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

Through an audacious technique of sound and image editing, combining different film stocks and overlapping dialogue, JFK is a powerful piece of cinema that deserves a place in everyone's collection. It is to director Oliver Stone's credit that he keeps the viewer continually engaged with the film through it's three hours and seventeen minutes running length.

The film is not only a significant technical achievement but supremely enjoyable on a purely cinematic level. The cast is uniformly excellent - a special nod of the head to Gary Oldman as Lee Harvey Oswald - and Robert Richardson's cinematography is, as always, gorgeous.

Due to the inflammatory subject matter (a U.S. covert action program designed to assassinate foreign leaders gets blown-back and turned on President Kennedy), this film and those associated with it have often come in for a lot of highly charged invective. Therefore, some background reading is highly recommended; if you only read one book on the Kennedy assassination, make it Oxford historian Anthony Summers' "Kennedy Conspiracy" for an in-depth and reasoned analysis.

In short, this is Oliver Stone's "J'accuse!" -not only one of the best films ever made but also one of the most important.

Oliver Stone's brilliantly written film about New Orleans District
Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation of JFK's assassination is
definitely one of the best Kevin Costner films. Right from the
enthralling opening, using some dramatic archive footage of one of the
most unexpected events the world has ever seen, it is obvious the
knowledge Stone has of the subject matter and just how much research
he has done. ... The other thing
which makes this film special is the outstanding cast list which
includes Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Joe Pesci, Kevin Bacon, Jack
Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Gary Oldman, Sissy Spacek, Donald Sutherland
and John Candy. Every character is played by an instantly recognisable
face and they give some great performances, particularly Joe Pesci as
David Ferrie and Tommy Lee Jones as Clay Shaw. Three hours in length
but never boring, Oliver Stone deserves much praise for the way he
handled the film and skillfully mixed many different filming
techniques to create a very impressive film. It's a great pity the
film didn't win more of the eight Oscars it was nominated for,
particularly Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
