Oliver Stone has never met an American fiasco he didn’t like, lament, and, with any luck, lambaste in one of his films. Whether it was America’s involvement in Vietnam (a trilogy of films that brought him two Best Director Oscars for Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July), the corruptions of Wall Street, the damaged psyches of two American presidents and the conspiracy surrounding the murder of a third, the politics of America’s favorite pastime—the NFL, and the violence glorified by the mass media in Natural Born Killers, Stone is America’s most renowned socially-conscious, politically promiscuous film director.
