Film Trivia Snippets - In Bull Durham, released three years earlier, Kevin Costner's character has a large monologue about what he believes in, and actually states that I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone; the exact opposite stance taken by his character in JFK.
JFK conspiracy theories always were kind of interesting and even though Stone's film emerges as a sort of docudrama that doesn't seem particularly concerned with its characters and their arcs so much as being an epic big-screen adaptation of Garrison's investigative report.
Special mention to Kevin Bacon as the gay hustler who outs Clay Shaw and Gary Oldman, appropriately creepy as Lee Harvey Oswald, but this film is a tribute to the sometime off-center genius that is Oliver Stone.
