JFK: Director's Cut Film Poster


Another 17 minutes of footage are added in director Oliver Stone's version of the Kennedy assassination, offering more evidence to support his conspiracy theory. Filmed through the eyes of New Orleans DA Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner), this film was released on a wave of controversy and led to calls for Congress to re-open government records from the 1977 House Select Committee on the assassination. Stone weaves actual archive footage with historical reconstruction and conjecture to present his argument that Kennedy was killed by the CIA due to his desire to stop the build-up of troops in Vietnam before it was too late.
