JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass - Oliver Stone documentary

Showtime’s JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass is a documentary in which writer and director Oliver Stone reexamines the John F. Kennedy assassination, 30 years after he stirred the pot with Oscar-nominated drama JFK.

"Oliver Stone’s inquiry is dense and undeniably passionate, and he’s overturned enough reasonably compelling discrepancies in testimony and documentation — ballistics, autopsies, photographers of autopsies, stopping short of dentists of photographers of autopsies, but only just — to raise a few eyebrows.

It’s enough to make one conclude that the film’s less of a convincing argument that JFK’s murder was an inside job, more of a testament to the incompetence and fallibility of investigatory committees like the Warren Commission. What’s that other razor? Hanlon’s? You know — never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
