Studio: HBO Studios
An Underrated GemI loved this movie since the premiere on HBO in '84 and have never tired of it. It's got it all; Great desert scenery, well done music score that adds to the suspense, evil government spooks, believable characters, better than average acting and just enough mystery to keep you on the hook.
It's not remotely faithful to any mainstream JFK conspiracy plots. The plot barely scrapes at the assasination issue anyway. The JFK angle was one of a dozen conspiracy themes that could've fit nicely with this movie. There's some degree of hoakiness and plot holes but the diatribe with Carson (Kurtwood Smith) in the desert with Logan is worth the price of admission alone. This is destined to be a cult classic with conspiracy buffs.
