    Oliver Stone`s powerful film about the shots heard round the world and the mystery enshrouding them is one of the most provocative movies of our time. Beside its box-office success, critical acclaim and awards, it played a major role in the national debate leading to passage of the 1992 Assassination Materials Disclosure Act.

    This remastered two-disc DVD edition features the Academy Award-winning film with 17 added minutes (Disc A) and compelling extra features (Disc B) that enrich the mosaic of the turbulent investigation of President John F. Kennedy`s 1963 assassination by Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner).

    The film that firmly established Oliver Stone as the most controversial director working in Hollywood finally gets the treatment it deserves on DVD.

    While apologists for The Warren Commission have slated this movie, saying it`s one of Stone`s little acid trips, they neglect to mention how engrossing the film is. Stone himself said that the film is not actual fact, but his interpretation of what happened on 22nd November 1963.
