Who really killed the 35th president of the United States John F. Kennedy?

On Friday, Nov 22, 1964, while riding with his wife in a topless motorcade, he was fatally shot. Investigations pointed to a Lee Harvey Oswald, and he was arrested. He protested his innocence, but was shot dead in front of policemen by nightclub owner Jack Ruby.

Oliver Stone’s powerful film about a complex conspiracy theory in which Lee Harvey Oswald was only a pawn is one of the most provacative movies of our time. Starring Kevin Costner, it explores the events leading up to the assassination and alleged cover-up, pointing to the next president as part of a coup d’etat to kill Kennedy.

This film was embroiled in controversy before it even finished filming, and subsequently went on to win 2 Oscars, including Best Picture. It also includes archival footages of the actual shooting, and is bound to open your eyes to the complexity of American politics.

This DVD contains an extra 17 minutes of footage.

D1 $9.90
