JFK Blown Away What Else Do I Have to Say?

Recently I watched the Oliver Stone film JFK starring Kevin Costner. This is was a very interesting film that was about a lawyer named Jim Garrison (Costner), who wants to go back and take everything involving the Kennedy assassination to court, to prove that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the only gunman on, November 22, 1963.

As the film goes along, Garrison and his team of lawyers,want to prove how many other people were tied in to the assassination. They also want to link many different people to Oswald. Since Oswald is now dead, he was assassinated by Jack Ruby, it is impossible to bring him to court to testify. Some of the people they want to testify are David Ferrie (Joe Pesci), Clay Shaw/Bertrand (Tommy Lee Jones), Willie O'Keefe (Kevin Bacon), to prove that they were all connected to Oswald, and the Kennedy's Death.

Of course that's not what happened. Before they get to court, Ferrie is killed, and Shaw denies everything. I won't ruin the story for those of you who want to see it. I will say this: JFK really did prove to me that there was a second gunman on the grassy knoll.

On a scale of 1-10 I say 9!
