PLATOON
1986, MGM Repertory, 120 min, Dir: Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone brings his own Vietnam War experiences to the big screen embodied in Pvt. Taylor (Charlie Sheen) in what stands as one of the definitive portraits of men at war. Well-intentioned Willem Dafoe and demonic Tom Berenger are flip sides of the same coin, two feuding sergeants and elder-brother role models who will take Sheen through his nightmarish trial by fire. Forest Whitaker is also among the ranks. Won Oscars for Best Picture and Director.

SOUTH OF THE BORDER
2009, Cinema Libre Studio, 78 min, Dir: Oliver Stone

There’s a revolution under way in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it. Oliver Stone embarks on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream media’s misperception of South America. In casual conversations with the presidents of Brazil, Argentina and Cuba among many others, Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region. "Feisty, entertaining..." - Time Out London. "...a necessary tilt at US media paranoia..." - Jonathan Romney, The Independent.
