I think Robert Blakey had the best line about Lee Harvey Oswald in this film. Where he said “Lee Oswald was a mystery inside of a riddle, wrapped around an enigma.” I think he was exactly that, which is why you can see why someone who was pretty intelligent, born growing up in a liberal democracy that America is and yet he decides to defect to Soviet Russia. The largest and worst totalitarian country the world has ever produced. Why would a mentally healthy intelligent person do that. He obviously wasn’t all there upstairs and perhaps saw things that weren’t there.
