Editorial Reviews

More than 40 years have passed since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History takes a comprehensive examination into the theories behind the assassination itself. It also explains the tragedy within the context of the existing U.S. political and cultural climate, and the global context of the Cold War.

The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History includes:

  • The first digital rendering of the Zapruder film, mastered from the original.
  • The only known color footage of Lee Harvey Oswald.
  • Cuban source material on the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
  • First-time use of audio material from Robert F. Kennedy¹s oral history.
  • Interviews with Arthur Schlesinger, John Frankenheimer, Jack Anderson and Sam Halpern.
  • A link between the film Psycho and the FBI’s report on Oswald.
  • Newly discovered footage from local television archives and foreign news sources, including Lyndon B. Johnson’s thoughts concerning a conspiracy.
  • Winner of the 1999 IDA/ABCNews VideoSource Award for the Best Use of News Footage in a Documentary.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A very scholarly film that deserves notice March 12, 2006
    Format:DVD
    First of all, let me just say that I am very qualified to give a review of any film concerning the JFK assassination. I am currently a professor of psychology at Texas A&M International University with an educational background in sociology and political science. I began my research on the Kennedy assassination more than 8 years ago as an honors student in a Texas History class. Since then, I have returned to the subject on and off and have given presentations on the subject as a graduate student and more recently as a professor. In the process of doing my research, I came across Noel Twyman's book Bloody Treason. At first I was turned off by the dramatic title (which I later discovered was a line from Shakespeare's Ceasar), but once I read the book (over 800 pages) I realized it was very objective and scholarly, and the approach of the author was that of a prosecuting attorney making his case before a court of sceptics. I admired the depth of this man's research and was very surpised that his work did not receive the respect or attention it most certainly deserved. Either way, I later watched the Final Chapter episodes of the Men Who Killed Kennedy on the History Channel, and while I had some minor objections to the simplicity of its conclusions regarding the Texas connection, I feel that Nigel Turner nonetheless deserves praise for his great contribution to this line of historical research. Having reached my own conclusions, I had put the subject of the Kennedy assassination to rest for a while. Then I came across The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History on DVD while perusing through some newly released DVDs. I have to say that I wasn't eager to spend another $18 on a JFK assassination DVD that I knew next to nothing about. But I finally decided to take a chance and make the purchase. Read more ›

    4.0 out of 5 stars ACTUALLY, A PRETTY GOOD DVD February 20, 2007
    Format:DVD
    As the leading civilian authority on the U.S. Secret Service (and President Kennedy's interaction with the agency), I was much interested in this DVD by Matthew White. Quite frankly, I didn't expect much, but the technical brilliance of the program---and the archival footage contained herein---make this a worthwhile purchase. Get this. vince palamara

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very complete historical record... March 11, 2006
    Format:DVD
    Probably the most interesting documentary on the events preceding and following the JFK assassination I've ever seen. Full of terrific news footage that makes the time period come alive, including a strange news clip of Jack Ruby's lawyer telling newscameras that being in Dallas makes him want to vomit! This documentary tends to lean towards conspiracy, careful to never vocally express that viewpoint as THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY did. It offers a lot to think about without taking a firm stance, which I appreciated.

    Anyway, there's much to process here. If you've got any interest in the case, in the Kennedys, in Castro or the Cold War, you'll enjoy this DVD.

    Though this reexamination of the variety of conspiracy theories contradicting the idea that Lee Harvey Oswald was solely responsible for the tragedy in Dallas is dry and academic in places, there's enough archival footage to get any history buff excited. There's not only a digitally remastered version of the still-gruesome Zapruder film, but also a really fine setting of the times, describing the powers of the Mafia, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Cuba, the USSR and the right-wing in America, separately and together motivated to remove the young, popular president. Historian Arthur Schlesinger and writer Jack Anderson provide interesting anecdotes and comments, and, while no specific theory is completely embraced, the DVD remains a fascinating look at a painful and troubling part of our history.

    "The Murder Of JFK: A Revisionist History" makes a very nice addition to any collection of John F. Kennedy-related materials (regardless of whether you're "pro-conspiracy", "anti-conspiracy", or somewhere in between with respect to your particular beliefs regarding President Kennedy's assassination). Although a definite thread of conspiratorial belief most certainly is woven into this documentary, it's not shamefully brazen or overly ridiculous-sounding in terms of conspiracy, which is unlike many of the other outlandish JFK theories and plots that have been postulated in the various books, films, and documentaries over the years.

    What this program fails to do, though, is to delve in any depth whatsoever into the life (and more importantly, the mind) of Lee Harvey Oswald....a man who I believe killed John Kennedy all by himself in 1963.

    Oswald's role in the assassination is pretty much glossed over here; and, strangely, Jack Ruby (the man who killed Oswald on 11/24/63) is barely even mentioned in this documentary. There's a short clip of Ruby murdering Oswald in the police basement, but after that snippet the subject of Ruby comes up (as I recall) only one other time, during a rather strange film clip showing a group of protestors demanding the immediate release of Dallas prisoner "John Ruby". (Oddly, these protestors didn't even seem to know the true name of the man they were fighting so hard to have released from jail.)

    "A Revisionist History" is a lengthy program, with a running time of 140 minutes (not the 180 minutes that is advertised on the DVD). It was made in 1999 and won an award for "best use of news footage in a documentary". And I can see why.
