Oliver Stone Discusses New Movie with Tavis Smiley Tonight.
Before I get started with Oliver Stone, did you happen to catch Laurence Fishburne with Tavis Smiley last night talking about his new role as Thurgood Marshall.
An interesting inteview that went far beyond the legacy of Justice Marshall into the current hearings over Elena Kagen. Interesting take with Fishburne’s answers and comments.
So watch it and learn about what’s going on.
On to Oliver Stone which is tonight to discuss his new movie and make some comparisons between Chavez and Fidel Castro.
Oliver Stone is a film director and screenwriter whose work often focuses on contemporary political and cultural issues. Stone, a Vietnam War veteran rose to fame in the late 1980s when he created a series of films about the Vietnam War including Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July, both of which earned him Academy Awards for Best Director. The question would be what’s happened to Stone’s perspective and that of his audience.. and how radical has he become compared to the rest of the nation.
