    BTW, if I were to cast this movie today, I would use Edward Norton as Oswald.

    It was excellent, and IMO it has the best cast ever assembled for a movie:

    Kevin Costner
    Tommy Lee Jones
    Gary Oldman
    Kevin Bacon
    Sissy Spacek
    Jack Lemmon
    Walter Matthou
    Joe Pesci
    Edward Asner
    Donald Sutherland
    Michael Rooker
    John Candy
    Wayne Knight
    Laurie Metcalf
    Vincent D'Onoffrio
    Brian Doyle Murray

    ...to name a few.

    Oldman's resemeblance to Oswald was so accurate it was frightening. Same with Murray as Jack Ruby.

    It may not be accurate, but one of the best.

    yeah, like other people said....it may not be the most accurate portrayal of the facts, but that aside, its an amazing film.

    I don't. Mostly due to the fact that it's all sorts of inaccurate and it's Oliver Stone. Let the stoning begin, I suppose...

    Great film points out how stupid you have to be to believe the "magic" bullet theory.

    it's a testement to oliver stone's talent that he was able to touch and affect so many people with a film that relied on "facts" that were 90% skewed or completely fabricated. the film is amazing, great performances from every single actor, terrific editing, etc.

    oswald acted alone.
