Stone won his first academy award in 1978 and since then he’s been a leader in films showing the horrors of war and the corruptions of power. His most recent film has received the acclaim of being taken down from YouTube. While he is left, his brand has always been acceptable. Until now when we are trying to manufacture consent against the Russian Federation. Stone did interviews with Putin for showtime after the annexation of Crimea that is referenced in the film.

Oliver Stone’s voice is a welcome as an antiwar activist and a fellow traveler. Please consider donating to Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
