JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass | Oliver Stone
Declassified files related to President Kennedy's assassination in a far larger context, aiming to shine more light on what really happened in 1963.
“JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass” is a 2021 American-British documentary film directed by Oliver Stone, based on the 1992 non-fiction book “Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba, and the Garrison Case” by James DiEugenio and on newly declassified evidence about the case. The film aims to shed more light on what really happened during President Kennedy's assassination in 1963. It premiered on July 12, 2021, in the Cannes Premiere section at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. The documentary is an exhaustive and sometimes exhausting film that reiterates many of the details of the case with a heavy focus on what's been learned via declassified reports, books by witnesses, and other analysis in the last 30 years. The film is divided into two hour-long chapters, with the first half focusing heavily on the evidence of that day in 1963, while the second half provides motives for an assassination and cover-up, pointing the finger at the CIA. The film features Oscar-winning narrators Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland, as well as a distinguished team of forensics, medical and ballistics experts, historians, and witnesses. “JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass” is available to watch on Showtime.
