12. I liked it.

There are critics who say, "Stone implies that EVERYONE was involved in a grand conspiracy." And, if one lacks insight, it could appear that way. But of course, that was NOT his message. At all.

Rather, he showed that there were many, many people who both wanted JFK out of office, and/or who benefited from his death.

A major point is made in the wonderful scene with Mr. X in DC: it isn't as important to identify either "who" or "how." The real question is "why?" And Stone's film does explain why. Exactly why.
