I'm thrilled to have seen this movie
If you want to see amazing performances presenting the transcripts of the Warren Commission and what happened, this is the movie for you to see. The timing couldn't be better for this film, arriving just a couple of weeks before the 40th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
The cast is marvelous and not a false performance anywhere. From the big names of Martin Landau, Sam Waterston, Martin Sheen, Stephen Collins, Joe Don Baker, Corbin Bernsen, to the small roles - everyone was perfectly cast.
The premiere had some unfortunate technical problems, but I assume that these will not be repeated. It was obviously a labor of love for all concerned and the stars gave it life. I hope that a distributor can be found for the film so everyone can have a chance to see it.
I saw it with a friend who has a vastly differing opinion from mine on the work of the Warren Commission, and though we totally disagree with their finding, we both felt the film was remarkable in the accuracy portrayed. It still makes me want a criminal investigation into the assassination. If you liked "The Missiles of October," you should enjoy this film.
Mark Sobel should be proud of what he has accomplished.
