    • Barrett: A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in an enigma.
      Tony: Joe Pesci. Oliver Stone's JFK. Nice.
      Barrett: Winston Churchill, Russia, nineteen thirty nine.

      JFK (1991) is an American film examining the events leading up to the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Directed by Oliver Stone, the film stars Joe Pesci as David Ferrie alongside Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones.

      Barrett paraphrases a statement made by Winston Churchill on the Russians, during a 1939 radio broadcast; "I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest."
