Oliver Stone Blogathon,Sept 15-Oct 6,2013
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.
