JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass (D: Oliver Stone) -- documentary

Thirty years after his film "JFK," filmmaker Oliver Stone takes viewers on a journey through recently declassified evidence in the assassination of President Kennedy-- the most consequential American murder mystery of the twentieth century. Joined by Oscar-winning narrators Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland, as well as a distinguished team of medical and ballistics experts, historians, and witnesses, Stone presents compelling evidence that in the Kennedy case "conspiracy theory" is now "conspiracy fact."
JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland, premiered at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and while we await a U.S. release, it’s coming soon in the U.K. and a new trailer has arrived from Altitude Films.

"Conspiracy theory is now conspiracy fact"

Where? There's nothing in that trailer that isn't exactly what Stone was saying in 1991. There's zero new evidence to prove anything...just the same old theories.

^ Maybe Whoopi Goldberg will shed some light on it!

There's more evidence now, it's just not favorable to Stone.

Nat Geo did a good doc on the bullets. Skip to about 23:00 for the magic one.

Yeah but “physical evidence always supports the truth of the matter” isn’t nearly as catchy as “back and to the left” on repeat.

Re: JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass (D: Oliver Stone) -- documentary

In recent years, I've no doubt that Oswald fired the shots that killed Kennedy. I just don't buy that he was acting alone. I'm sure there was some group that put him up to it, and I think there's a possibility there may have been more than one gunman present. But I think Oswald is definitely the one who fired the fatal shot.

I dunno. The fatal shot still looks like it came from in front/side of JFK to me. The POV from the depository seems more behind JFK to make it at that angle.
Add that there were numerous people hearing where they thought some shots came from, plus some witnesses seeing people flee the scene behind the grassy knoll.

But I agree in general - he definitely didn't act alone.

That doesn't have to mean anything, witnesses see and hear all kinds of things. Three years ago in my home town a van crashed into a restaurant, killing 4 people. Witnesses saw terroists fleeing the van shouting 'allahu akbar'. It turned out there was one suicidal man, who drove the van and shot himself after the crash, never leaving the van.

Agree. Also, I from having been on hunting trips as a kid when shots are fired the sound kind of goes off in several directions. Unless someone actually saw smoke coming from the grassy knoll area, it's unlikely there were other shooters, and there is a very good chance the people seen running were just reacting to the erupting chaos.

Crap. Was hoping to read that they were issuing a 4K remaster for the 30th anniversary.

Me too! I would love to see a 4K remaster along with the option to watch the much superior THEATRICAL cut!

Also, I don't blame ANYONE for believing in a possible conspiracy regarding the Kennedy assassination. There has been *way* too much fishy stuff surrounding it forever.

Even this little comedy clip from The Kentucky Fried Movie, while mainly played for laughs, nails some of the reason there's so much skepticism in regards to the official story:

If one of you guys could just read through those 1,500 documents and then tell me who the real killer was, I’d appreciate it.
