Oliver Stone is a paragon of film activism. Former Marine radicalized by The JFK assassination. 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.
Both of my grandparents on my mother’s side were born in the Ukraine in what was then a Polish city called Lvov now called Lviv witness to some of the worst pogroms of WWII. It upsets me when westerners mold the narrative into a manichaean formula. The only winners in this scenario are defense contractors Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. Oliver Stone’s voice is a welcome as an antiwar activist and a fellow traveler. Please consider donating to Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
Thankfully Oliver Stone waved his invisible hands to put together what those of us on the far left have already known in a cohesive way only he can. There Is a lot of misinformation out there but hopefully Stone’s credibility can quell some of the war fever.Share it with your friends before it disappears off the Internet.
