Product Description

Almost forty years after John F. Kennedy's assassination, an ex-Marine named Walter Ohlinger has come forward with a startling claim: I was in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Does that mean anything to you? I've never told anyone this before; no one knows . . . I was the second gunman behind the stockade fence on what they called the grassy knoll. I fired one shot from there. Shedding new light on the most well known murder mystery of the 20th century, this masterful thriller will keep you second-guessing right up to the last frame.

Amazon.com

Bringing the Blair Witch method to the JFK assassination, Interview with the Assassin has an irresistible hook. A videographer begins filming his lean, hard-bitten neighbor, who has cancer and wants to get something off his conscience: he was the second gunman in Dallas on November 22, 1963. As the filmmaker pursues the story, it gradually dawns on him that the original conspiracy of silence is still operating... and that his own life may be in danger. First-time director Mel Burger sticks to the pseudo-documentary approach--no cheating here--and when the purported hit man strolls through some back streets in Dallas to re-visit his position on the grassy knoll, it's a truly eerie moment. Veteran character actor Raymond Barry makes the most of his role as the gunman, a laconic fellow with a chillingly matter-of-fact manner. The movie's concept may be a gimmick, but as gimmicks go, it's a humdinger. --Robert Horton

Rented this movie blind and loved it. Had no idea what to expect and was happily surprised both by the premise and the execution. The low-key, fly-on-the-wall direction and a sublime turn by Raymond J. Barry propel the viewer along on a paranoic humdinger of a ride. Certainly kept me guessing although I thought the ending could've been handled a little better. The documentary style factoid notes just before the end credits were a nice touch. On the whole a good movie with a fantastic first half and an ok second.

A hugely effective addition to the JFK conspiracy theme. The power of this film lies in its flat, matter of fact, low budget, day-in-the life style.
The actors are particularly effective at "not acting", playing ordinary people caught up in what may (or may not) be an extraordinary conspiracy.
The use of the documentary style imposes terrific discipline on the filmmaker and his audience. There are no behind the scenes explanations or subplots.
The director deliberately avoids speculating on what goes on behind closed doors in the sanctuaries of people in power. Viewers must ultimately draw their own conclusions, which is the very device that makes this movie so intelligent. At the same time, the plainness of the locales, the dialogue, and the characters allows us to identify with them on an emotional level. All in all, a very powerful combination.

I took a chance on this flick finding it on Net Flix. My wife loved it too. Remember it's fiction and entertainment and just go with it. There are too many awful DOG movies out there to rate this anything less than FIVE STARS! I loved it. Check this movie out. All the evidence has the viewer thinking wow, yes this guy really was the lone shooter that fateful day.

Well done, well researched, and well made.

To the casual viewer one might be lead to believe that this was an actual documentary, that is how well this film was made.

From beggining to end you find yourself deeply involved in the conspiracy that is unfolding and in this process you learn a few things as well such as names, places, theories, and most importantly, that the cover-up is still going on.

If you are doing any research on JFK and the events surrounding his mysterious death you will find this film interesting and informative.

The Raymond Barry character is the reason to watch this "Blair Witch Project" style pseudo-documentary. He is chilling as a matter-of-fact old man who claims he was the second gunman in the JFK murder and now wants his 15 minutes of fame because he has a fatal illness and is going to die anyway. The maker never lets up once in the shaky camera style of following this dude around as he tries to prove his claim. This isn't a satisfyng film in that you won't necessarily believe this could be. But it does succeed on its own terms as a film that is true to its aims. I thought it was pretty good.

it's implausible that the second gunman (if there was one) would have been allowed to live. 'they' would have killed him just as they killed oswald. it would've been too dangerous to do otherwise. what happened in this film proves the point. so a so-called story of the assassin really is pure fiction, even if there was a conspiracy to kill jfk. the film itself is also a little flawed. even after the marine co died (or was killed), there was still the would-be assassin's shooting buddy who could have corroborated the claims. he didn't have to attempt to kill the pres to prove his point.
still, an interesting film. worth a rental, at least.

I've seen the movie before, and wanted to own it in hard copy (dvd) because these old somewhat obscure films are hard to come by that way, moreso than big budget flicks, in my experience, anyway. This film seems like it's really happening as filmed, and gets scarier too, as it moves along. I had made a mistake while waiting for dvd, and mis--sent a request-&-problem meant for a totally different seller, to Bookgrove. They expediently resolved it with me, so they are conscientious and prompt.

The only reason I'm posting this 5 star review is to balance out GEORGE FISHER'S one star review which Amazon mistakenly posted TWICE.

But this is a great suspense film for people looking for something different.
