More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    Stone and his editors, Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia, have somehow triumphed over the tumult of material here and made it work - made it grip and disturb us.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    [Stone's] filmmaking is so supple and alive, his obsession with the visual aspect of history so electrifying, that JFK practically roots itself in your imagination.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Through his art and passion, Stone makes JFK plausible, and turns his thesis of a coup d'etat into fodder for renewed debate.

    Time Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    JFK is Stone's best and most emotional film since "Platoon."

    Washington Post Full Review

    JFK still retains a primal power; no number of derivative, headache-inducing CSI episodes can blunt the impact of Stone's aggressive visuals, and the film's plea for accountability and honesty in government is as vital now as ever.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Staff (Not Credited)

    Director and co-screenwriter Oliver Stone pulls off an amazing filmmaking feat with JFK, transforming the dry minutiae of every John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theory of the past three decades into riveting screen material.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Controversy and all, JFK is one of the year's most powerful and provocative films.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    So is JFK a good movie? Actually, it’s a great movie that looks better with each passing year. Even aside from what it’s saying, and even with the many, many forced moments, JFK has a mad genius about it.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Torene Svitil

    Truth or not, this is an exceptional piece of cinema, deeply provoking and audacious.

    Empire Full Review
  • Staff [Not Credited]

    Oliver Stone's JFK is electric muckraking filmmaking.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Howe

    Stone creates a riveting marriage of fact and fiction, hypothesis and empirical proof in the edge-of-the-seat spirit of a conspiracy thriller.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Stone makes it virtually impossible to leave the theatre convinced, beyond all shadow of doubt, of the lone gunman theory.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The movie is often tremendously exciting.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Vincent Canby

    The movie, which is simultaneously arrogant and timorous, has been unable to separate the important material from the merely colorful.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Stone's all-purpose conspiracy theory, built like a house of cards, rivals "Mississippi Burning" in its sheer crudeness and contempt for the audience.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • David Ansen

    If history is a battlefield, JFK has to be seen as a bold attempt to seize the turf for future debate. It is also "just" a movie, and one that for three hours and eight minutes of dense, almost dizzying detail, is capable of holding the audience rapt in its grip. [23 Dec 1991, p.50]
