    I've seen 3 episodes so far and I like it! I wouldn't call it Anti-American but there is always a History you've been told, and a History that is hidden or not pushed by mass media.

    See, I view "The Truth" as being very American, and I think any info that helps people get to the truth is very American.

    The part that really stuck with me was the fact that Henry Wallace was voted out as Roosevelt's Veep in 1944 and had Wallace been sworn in as President after Roosevelt passed away in 1945 the US might have been a completely different place. And it was done for reasons everyone should check out for themselves.

    Is that "revisionist" or "false" history that it really happened?

    Am I a Lefty/Communist now for merely knowing it and understanding it?

    Oliver Stone is brilliant, whether you agree with him or not. His movie, "JFK", is as close to the TRUTH about the JFK assassination as anybody will probably ever get.

    "The Doors" was brilliant. "Born On The 4th Of July" was garbage.

    I don't always like his movies, but I admire his passion.

    Even though I'm closer to his politics than I was five years ago, I've never thought Stone was a good director. Even when he isn't doing political stuff, his camera work and blocking and pacing are so awful they are a distraction.

    JFK repeats a lot of myths about the JFK assassintion and serves them up as a stew for conspiracy nuts. BUt like all conspiracies, (UFOs, Waco, 9/11, where Obama was actually born), you really can't argue facts with conspiracy nuts.

    The ultimate sign he's an awful director... He did that movie Alexander, which had a sex scene with Rosario Dawson, and it was boring.

    How can you shoot a sex scene with THIS WOMAN and make it boring?
