Kennedy. With the words come images, faces, names, snatches of dialogue, flashbacks to the evidence, all marshaled to support his conclusion that the murder of JFK was not the work of one man.

Oliver Stone's film has the classic anecdote, visual scale and gist to match; not simply a fascinating real-life plot thriller, but also an al...
