After a successful TV broadcast in late 2021, on Sky here in the UK and Showtime in other territories. its time for me to add this fantastic and very detailed documentary series to my ever growing Oliver Stone collection. I’m also every happy that it isn’t just the feature length documentary that is getting a disc release (JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass) but also the 4 hour series (JFK: Destiny Betrayed) that is getting a disc release also, and in the same pack! So what do you get in this pack. well here’s a little more detail for you, but having seen JFK REVISITED: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS and was engrossed in it, I am really excited to see the far more comprehensive JFK: DESTINY BETRAYED and I cant recommend this set enough
JFK REVISITED: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
An official selection of the Cannes Film Festival, this feature-length film presents a fresh look at the vast archive of material that has recently been placed into public record. Thirty years after acclaimed director Oliver Stone’s first examination of JFK’s assassination, Oliver reassesses the horrific event that shaped a generation. Using newly declassified and reexamined documents, Oliver presents a compelling, thought-provoking documentary narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland and feature a very large amount of other super knowledgeable people who know far more about the JFK case than I could put into words.
JFK: DESTINY BETRAYED
Subjects covered in this mini-series include the early formation of President Kennedy’s foreign policy worldview, his travels to Vietnam as a senator, his support of fledgling democracies in Africa, and his anti-colonial convictions which put him in opposition to the Eisenhower administration, the CIA, and the Pentagon. Viewers are also given a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the post-assassination actions and initial suspicions of Kennedy’s brother, Robert, as well as his views on the official Warren Commission investigation. The assassination, forensic, and ballistic evidence not covered in JFK Revisited are explored here in greater detail.
And if 6 hours of documentary isnt enough to get your brain into overdrive, you also get a Audio Commentary For JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass By Director Oliver Stone And Writer James DiEugenio and having listened to every commentary that Oliver Stone has put out, I cant recommend enough that you make sure you listen to it
You can order the bluray/dvd set here
There is also a very impressive set that includes an autographed poster which you can get here
That’s just for the US/Canada so I’m very jealous of those who can get it
