    A gripping and carefully calibrated suspense story.

    Neil Burger's sharply conceived, inventive movie is a highly involving piece of work.
  3. 75
    This film offers a compelling scenario of what could have happened. And Burger's look back through the recent mists of time is certainly no less likely or fascinating that Oliver Stone's in "JFK."
  4. Barry, with a raspy Southern accent, gives a chilling portrait of a man who is absolutely sure he killed JFK. Whether he's a psychopath or a schizophrenic is not satisfactorily answered, but it's a fascinating question nonetheless.

    Satisfying picture that like a pot of water on the stove keeps heating up until it explodes.
  6. 58
    It's an interesting effort (particularly for JFK conspiracy nuts), and Barry's cold-fish act makes the experience worthwhile.

    It's just a gimmick, right down to its Washington release date.
