Interview with the Assassin

First-time filmmaker Neil Burger has come up with a seriously clever concept. This fake documentary introduces us to an aged ex-Marine, who claims—quite soberly—that he is the mysterious "second gunman" responsible for J.F.K.'s death. Longtime character actor Raymond J. Barry is positively chilling as the unemotional crime confessor with an inside track on the greatest conspiracy of all time. Burger takes a cue from another infamous fake doc, The Blair Witch Project, and uses the intimacy and familiarity of video to create an increasingly tense air of paranoia. The film amps up the thrills, building to a positively seat-gripping climax. Hot stuff. 88 minutes
