Oliver Stone – Chasing the Light

If Hollywood had a successful, iconoclastic director known for questioning the mainstream American narrative – something many view as a contradiction in terms – it might very well be Oliver Stone. With a career spanning over 40 years as a screenwriter and director, Stone has covered topics such as the drug trade in Scarface, overseas military intervention with Platoon and Salvador, and financial greed with Wall Street. His political biopics remain controversial with many in the establishment as they question the very legitimacy of the American world order. Tonight, we are joined by Harry Flashman, a writer for the American Sun, to discuss this prolific film maker.

    Interesting topic thanks for doing this. I have only seen a couple of his movies, I always associated Stone with the Bernie/Tulsi type crowd. He’s made some good movies and has some good things to say. Anymore, I’m not sure one can identify with the American “left” and still be anti-system. Seems most of these types have no problem with empire and all its abuses so long as there’s a BLM sticker on it. I’ll definitely make an effort to see more of his movies now. Tbh JFK always struck me as cheap fodder for boomer libtards but I never watched the whole thing.

    I enjoyed the discussion as always thanks for your work. I look forward to more episodes!

    For a good laugh, I recommend watching Delta Force (1986). If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the movie was written by one of “our guys” with the intention to pack in as many memes as possible, it’s really awe inspiring.

    A Che Guevara episode would be lots of fun, like Nick mentioned. This was a great episode, as always. I’ve got a lot of movies I need to see now.
