RFK’s assassination was solved quicker than JFK’s. Anyone who watches the deluge of crime shows knows that most murder involving average citizens, if anything, often take years coming to trial as evidence continues to be weighed and discovered. Was this a cut and dried lone gunman assassination? It is a question that in light of the discussion of the 9-11 official report and aftermath seems more relevant. Yet it is mostly forgotten as solved. This is a pretty good open-ended expose of why too the RFK murder may not be case closed as we’ve been told. It only proves there were many unanswered questions however to which it is almost certain we’ll never know for sure. Was the closure as given the one some very powerful and ruthless people designed? I think this is the possibility raised here making it of interest. It is well enough made to not insult your intelligence while reasoning there is likely more.
The Kennedy brothers... doomed, so says history. Here we have a solid attempt to try to ask the right questions, and provide possible reasons for the cover-up. Who really killed Robert Kennedy? Why? Remember, "conspiracy theory" was a term coined by the CIA to create perception of lunacy around anyone getting close to the truth. Notice that in the modern era, present day reality, "conspiracy theory" is used to discount any objection to EVERY COVER STORY. Ok... I understand; It's best to believe published history, I am certain, because if you view a film such as this one with an open mind/heart, you will feel you do not know what is real anymore. So... best idea, discount the questions in this film, pay no attention, walk on by... "nothing to see here... these are not the ones you are looking for" ....or... let yourself wonder who is really in charge? Something they do not mention in this film; there was a student photographer who photographed the whole thing. He was stopped before leaving this event, and his camera was taken. He stated that he was in a great position to capture the event factually. Later his camera was returned, with NO film... when he asked for the film, he was told it was LOST. 35mm black and white film, used correctly by an aspiring professional photographer would yield high quality detailed images... never has been found.
At the time of the Robert Kennedy assassination, I was living less than a mile from where it happened. I was also delivering early morning newspapers to neighborhoods that were just a few blocks from that location. My wife and I watched all of this on our little TV just before I had to go make my deliveries. It was very strange to deliver newspapers to homes with residents standing outside looking toward southward where everything was happening. I was twice stopped by police in the area wanting to know what I was doing and why was I in the area. So this whole event is burned into my memory like it happened yesterday. This documentary is very well done and makes a lot of sense. Even at the time, no one could even make sense of why this little guy would be (1) equipped with a gun, (2) be in just the right place at the right time, and (3) and have such close and easy access to Robert Kennedy in such a tight spot. If you or I had been in that building we would have never gotten within 10 feet of Kennedy - and yet they put him out in front and his security team walked behind him. Tell me that is not a setup. This program has at least exposed some of the questions that have never been properly answered. It was pretty clear to me that none of the Kennedys would ever be allowed to truly and fairly lead this country. This documentary was very well done and worthy of your time to watch it. You will learn a lot about American history and why we are where we are today politically.
This was an excellent documentary, rife with conspiracy theories along with archival photos and video as well as interviews with those that were at the scene of the assassination. Was RFK killed by the CIA? Why were there operatives there if not to guard Mr. Kennedy? Were interviewees coerced to change or retract their stories? Though this is mainly for conspiracy theorists, the archival footage is fascinating to watch, as well. Very interesting.
This film clearly opened a door into the assassination of Robert Kennedy, but who or what came through it apparently will never be known for sure. Most of the players are no more, the building itself where Kennedy was assassinated is now gone, and only if there remains a paper train somewhere, will we ever know if the hypothesis of this film is correct - Was the assassination of Robert Kennedy conducted by our very own Central Intelligence Agency?
Based on the book by Robert Blair Kaiser (whom I had the pleasure of conversing with for a few days when this film played at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival), the film takes a sober-eyed look at some inconvenient details about a disturbing trend of "lone nut assassins" that seemed to focus almost entirely on civil rights and political leaders shaking the established foundations of the 1960s. Sadly, since the revelations of the Church Committee in the 1970s, the evidence has been largely disregarded as conspiracy hackery in an age without any apparent historical context to realize just how insanely deadly certain factions and forces inside our own country were and their attempts to maintain a status quo in an America that was struggling to move forward. Not a comfortable viewing experience but necessary to understand the times.
If the assassinations in the '60s fascinate and frustrate you, this is easily worth the investment of 52 minutes of your time. While we are left with no firm conclusions, a great deal of pertinent information is presented, and in a very interesting way.

It's unfortunate. The best, most in-depth look at this assassination remains Dan Moldea's book. Again, this film's utilization of Sirhan's lawyer as a primary inspires zero confidence and makes the filmmaker seem very naïve.

A well made tape with well chosen clips. The first half with the background of the campaign for the presidency is well made and empathetic. The problem is the conspiracy which is just plain thin! Although some doubt is cast on the credibility of Sirhan Sirhan acting alone, no other plausible assasin is put forward. There were many organisations with a sufficient grudge against the ex-attorney general, from the mafia who he hounded to the Cuban exiles who were abandoned. No substantial link is built however, leaving the viewer with a strong sense of anti-climax
