Rating: 4/5 -- As an absurdist take on conspiracy thrillers, it's close to brilliant -- assuming you get the joke, which audiences don't seem to have in 1979. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A real cult classic, this reimagining of the Kennedy assassination asks what might have gone down in an alternate and very similar universe.
