Captivating meeting with those who where there
23 November 2013 | by OJTSee all my reviews

I just caught this in a screening, and was absolutely captivated by the storytelling. This is a minute by minute telling about what happened in Dallas, Texas, on this day 50 years ago, 22nd of November 1963. We meet those who we're standing so close, that they saw the shootings and even got the blood spatter on themselves. The interviews with the persons are followed by film clips from several angles. Amazingly all the film- and photo cameras around this day has made the film makers able to reconstruct if all in a way I though would never be possible.

We get to see all in details. From the presidents following want on his last speech and on to the Air Force one 13 minutes before landing in Texas, and to the traveling with the body. We also see the arresting of Lee Harvey Oswald, the questioning of him, and Jack Ruby's shooting of Oswald 35 hours later.

The film gives me no doubt what so ever that Oswald was the killer. It's strong to see Oswald's girlfriend telling about her thoughts of the day, and when the police came to search her house. She still remembers like it was yesterday.

This documentary got me interested in watching JFK once more. I think this film was a blessing to see, killing off most of the conspiracy theories which have got opportunities and time to evolve. The most accurate telling of the story you'll ever see.
