"Here it is, the people who actually
saw something and believed that the
truth never did fully reveal itself. The
people are real, the incidents are
there on the record. Very compelling,
a good strong job. It will tend to de-
stroy your peace of mind."

"The camera never lies, it is hard not
to believe these eye-witness accounts.
It is one thing to read written testi-
mony but quite something else to
observe witnesses' facial reactions to
questions and hear testimony from
their own lips. The film should win
new sceptics of the Warren Comms-
sion over to Lane's side."
