I thought that visually this was a very nice film. The lighting was good and captured a period mood very well. What most impressed me though was the way the shots were staged. Unlike 'Blood Dimanond', which I saw straight after, here one could see that the filmmakers had clearly thought out the shots in advance. Both the shots themselves and the editing was very fluid, almost effortless. They played a lot with foreground and background elements, different planes of focus, giving the images a very three-dimensional feel (as opposed to the flat long-lens shots that one mostly gets nowadays from multi-camera shoots).

Unfortunately the writing could not match the level of the direction. For an ensemble piece the characters seemed very flat, none of their stories were very interesting and they just felt unimportant compared to the RFK assasination.
