Oliver Stone Blogathon,Sept 15-Oct 6,2013

September 4, 2013

I think experience will teach you a combination of liberalism and conservatism. We have to be progressive and at the same time we have to retain values. We have to hold onto the past as we explore the future.

Oliver  Stone, a man whom you either love or hate, but you just cannot ignore.You could argue about  his  politics, his tendency to narrate stories  through his own political prism  or  come out with his own version  of  history.  But  there is no denying  that he has been one of  the best movie makers  ever in recent  times. Not  many  American directors have covered  Vietnam the way he did -Platoon, Born on the 4th of  July, Heaven and Earth,  and one  of the best movies on Latin America in Salvador. A director who covered  3 American Presidents(  JFK, Nixon, W) and the greed of  Wall Street.  In a way Stone’s movies  cover contemporary  America, in all ways  be it in his dark,  thrillers  like  Natural Born Killers  or  U-Turn  or the more sordid side of American football in Any Given Sunday.

After  covering  successful  blogathons  on  Ridley  Scott, Tony  Scott Howard Hawks,Michael Mann  and Sydney  Pollack,  we  now announce  the  OLIVER  STONE  BLOGATHON, starting  from September 15( his birthday)  and ending on October 6. And  yes  you can take  part in this  blogathon,by  contributing  posts,articles, interviews,anything  related  to  Oliver Stone.  And  please do  promote this  at  your movie  blog, using  one of  the banners given  below.
