Plot Summary
A cameraman, Ron Kobeleski (Dylan Haggerty), finds out that his next-door neighbor, Walter Ohlinger (Raymond J. Barry), may be the much-fabled second gunman who assassinated President John F. Kennedy. At first, Kobeleski doubts the elderly man's story. But Ohlinger increasingly convinces the younger man that he was a pivotal player in one of the 20th century's most notorious crimes. Kobeleski eventually follows Ohlinger to Dallas and elsewhere, searching for the agent who trained him to kill.

  • The movie's storytelling is limp, and writer-director Neil Burger's ultimate unwillingness to commit to a point of view -- was this guy really the assassin? -- seems artistically chicken-hearted. show more

  • May be something of a stunt, but it's a fascinating stunt that holds your attention from the start to shortly before the finish. show more

  • 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. show more
