A classic story is given a 2018 treatment. Bradley Cooper’s project succeeds on a high level.
“That’s the real question isn’t it: why? The how and the who is just scenery for the public. Oswald, Ruby, Cuba, The Mafia, keeps ’em guessing like some kind of parlor game, prevents ’em from asking the most important question: why? Why was Kennedy Killed? Who benefited? Who has the power to cover it up? Who?” – Donald Sutherland as X
“It’s like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don’t make any sense to me. They’re being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.” – Dustin Hoffman as Ben Braddock
” I’m old now and I want to remember what was there for me once and what is there for me now.” Jane Fonda as Lillian Hellman
“You guys are about to write a story that says the former Attorney General, the highest-ranking law enforcement officer in this country, is a crook! Just be sure you’re right.” – Jason Robards as Ben Bradlee
