Reviews
Mine: Impressive, if over long. Interesting in how it shows what obsession will do, both the film makes and the DA's. I sould see it again.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Absolutely riveting film about New Orleans D. A. Jim Garrison and his gradual involvement (and eventual obsession) with finding the truth about President Kennedy's assassination. Full of startling scenes, and bravura acting; as dramatic moviemaking, it's superb. Not to be mistaken for a documentary, however, despite its sanctimonious attitude toward the truth. Oscar winner for Robert Richardson's cinematography and Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's phenomenal editing. Screenplay by Oliver Stone and Zachary Sklar. The real Garrison can be glimpsed playing Earl Warren. Lolita Davidovich and Frank Whaley appear unbilled. Director's cut runs 205m. Panavision.
