| An Excellent Addendum to the Movie: JFK
If you recall the beginning of Oliver Stone's film JFK, a young woman is tossed out of a car on a deserted highway. She is picked up by State Police, claiming that she is aware of a plot to assassinate JFK. This movie picks up this strand where Oliver Stone leaves it. A perfect addendum to JFK, the film fills in many blanks and does not repeat nor contradict what has gone before.

By looking more closely at the CIA/Mafia links, the viewer gains a greater understanding of the background preparation concerning the hit on JFK and shines a far greater light of the CIA's use of the mob and Corsican hit men to do their work on American soil.

Also illustrates Canada's position as the ideal escape corridor for subversive activity. Definitely worth a close look.
