Chronicling New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation into the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy, this riveting drama examines assassination theories that still plague the United States with persistent questions, doubts and suspicions about the murder of a charismatic President--an event that changed a nation forever. Based on the books Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy by Jim Marrs and On the Trail of the Assasins by Jim Garrison.

Critics Consensus: As history, Oliver Stone's JFK is dubious, but as filmmaking it's electric, cramming a ton of information and excitement into its three-hour runtime and making great use of its outstanding cast.

Politician makes case for JFK murder as conspiracy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in its attempt to convince the audience (and the world) that President Kennedy was not killed by Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone, this film shows disturbing footage of the actual shooting over and over again, sometimes close-up, sometimes in slow-motion, heightening the effects of the bullets. Other scenes show brutal beatings, dead bodies, and a re-creation of the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald. Language throughout is coarse, filled with sexual expletives and racial and homosexual insults. There are party scenes that show licentious gay behavior. A stripper is briefly seen dancing suggestively while nearly nude.
