Stone and Sjursen Part 4 – Ep 77
Danny’s final discussion with Oliver Stone is here!!! The discussion includes how Oliver expressed his angst with his parents’ divorce through the stories of Elias and Barnes in Platoon, boot licking war films (like Gladiator and Blackhawk Down) and their exceptionally narrow points of view, and the DOD’s reaction to providing support for Platoon.
Buy Oliver’s new book right here, “Chasing the Light: Writing, Directing, and Surviving Platoon, Midnight Express, Scarface, Salvador, and the Movie Game”
Danny’s new book, “Patriotic Dissent: America in the Age of Endless War” releases on September 8th. Pick it up right here from Heyday Books.
