What I liked

The back & forth scenes between the three sub-sections. The performance of John’s character, although limited in dialog, a well done visual representation of a disturbed individual.

What I didn't like

First & foremost: the actor portraying the d.o.e. agent.. Although attractive & well groomed, it was very difficult to hear his spoken lines, especially difficult for an older person such as I, with mild hearing loss. Also, since this is a complex issue with little known previous history leading up to the event, I think it would be of benefit to expand the government subsection to clarify the hidden causes leading up to the actual event.

My overall impression

The author has devoted a lot of research into the root causes of the attempted assassination of President Reagan in March of 1981. It was very creative the way that events were portrayed in three separate sub-sections: On the right side the dialog among government officials; on the left side the banter between mother & daughter in the restaurant; and in between the appearance of an obviously nervous John Hinckley.
