In this very special edition of Natter Cast, Jason, Gary and Donielle examine Oliver Stone's brilliant yet deeply flawed masterpiece, JFK.
Wherever you come down on the question of JFK, this film is a must see.
On the Trail of the Assassins
Everything begins with Jim Garrison's book, On The Trail of the Assassins
Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy
Oliver Stone was also deeply influenced by Jim Marrs' book, especially regarding government involvement at the highest levels.
Gerald Posner's book addresses many of the allegations made by Garrison, Stone, Marrs and others and presents the case for Oswald having acted alone.
The JFK 100
Dave Reitzes webpage "The JFK 100" direct addresses historical inaccuracies, some might say distortions, in Stone's film and provides alternate explanations for the evidence in the case against Clay Shaw and David Ferrie.
Finally, if you're looking for a great rendition of the JFK conspiracy that admits it's pure fiction, check out James Ellroy's Underworld USA Trilogy
Wherever you come down on it, whether you think Oswald acted alone or literally everyone in the country except Oswald was involved, we hope you enjoy Stone's movie and our conversation!
