‘The Oliver Stone Experience’ Book Illuminates Controversial Director’s Career

7 September 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jammed with lengthy and insightful Q&As with three-time Oscar-winner Oliver Stone, as well as news clippings, script pages, rare photos, and production memos, Matt Zoller Seitz’s 480-page book “The Oliver Stone Experience” is, like the filmmaker and his movies, obsessive and captivating.

Even longtime fans of the polarizing but undeniably brilliant director might not know the practical reason behind the innovative style of “JFK,” that “The Doors” was originally visualized as a Fellini movie, or why Stone was sued for incitement of violence in the wake of “Natural Born Killers.” Other highlights of the book, available Sept. 13 for $50, include treatments for unproduced films, storyboards, and scene breakdowns.

More than just a fawning career survey, Seitz’s probing questions challenge Stone on a number of important subjects, including the representation of women in his work. Seitz argues that prior to the 1993 drama “Heaven and Earth,” Stone’s female characters »

The Timelessness of Loneliness: Billy Wilder's The Apartment

7 September 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

From the factory-like offices of the 1960s to the endlessness of the internet in the 21st century, The Apartment is an evergreen classic that endures to remind us that a little companionship can go a long way.

 Billy Wilder made a career out of making timeless classics. From the noir groundbreaker Double Indemnity to the boundary-pushing comedy Some Like It Hot, his run cemented him as an all-time great. But it's his five-time Oscar winning film The Apartment that unsentimentally tackled love, sex, and loneliness in modern America without knowing it would stay modern for at least fifty more years.

The Apartment was released in the summer of 1960. And with the new decade brought a new shift in the United States in the way we approached sex in film and culture. The Motion Picture Production Code (sometimes referred to as “The Hays Code”) was loosening its grip, and the cultural »

Amy Adams, Ethan Hawke and Oliver Stone will receive 2016 career tributes at the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards, the annual ceremony presented by New York’s Independent Filmmaker Project.

At a November gala that is traditionally one of the first awards-season events of the year, Adams and Hawke will receive actress and actor tributes, respectively, while Stone gets the directing honor.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Says Edward Snowden's 'Old-Fashioned Manners' Surprised Him

2 September 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it came to bringing the story of Edward Snowden to life on the big screen for Snowden, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt and filmmaker Oliver Stone made sure to go straight to the source - even though Snowden now lives in political exile in Russia.

Watch This: Kevin Costner helps JFK stop a nuclear war

24 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Every day, Watch This offers staff recommendations inspired by a new movie coming out that week. This week: With the election almost upon us and the Obama drama Southside With You coming soon to theaters, we tweak an old Watch This topic and hail some of our favorite films about real U.S. Presidents.

Thirteen Days (2000)

After seeking to unravel a conspiracy regarding President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1991’s JFK, Kevin Costner opted to spend time alongside America’s 35th commander-in-chief in Thirteen Days, a gripping (if factually suspect) recounting of 1962’s Cuban Missile Crisis. Based on Ernest May and Philip Zelikow’s book, director Roger Donaldson’s film takes its greatest license with regards to its focus—specifically, on Costner’s Kenneth O’Donnell, the special assistant to JFK, who’s here elevated to the role of prime facilitator during the emergency.

Extended Snowden Clip Spotlights The Human Side Of Oliver Stone’s Tech Thriller

20 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gloves are off in this new, extended clip for Snowden – and we’re not talking about the whistleblower’s crusade against the Nsa.

Instead, today’s all-new snippet shifts focus to the human element of Oliver Stone’s long-awaited drama, teeing up a political debate between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley on the grounds of the capital. It’s a nice tease, and already we’re sensing a natural dynamic developing between the film’s two leading stars.

Together, they’ll anchor Stone’s political thriller as Snowden and his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who becomes drawn into a web of data mining and government surveillance once Gordon-Levitt’s lead casts a blinding light on the Nsa’s malpractice – classified information that featured the likes of Prism and more.

Turned down by every major studio due to its pressing subject matter, Oliver Stone’s Snowden will finally emerge into theaters »

28 July 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley also set to attend.

Zurich Film Festival (Sept 22-Oct 2) has landed one of the first screenings of Oliver Stone’s whistleblower drama Snowden and will host the film’s director as well as stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley.

The gala screening - the first to be announced for this year’s festival - will take place on Sept 24, just weeks after its world premiere at Toronto (Snowden debuted to an invite-only screening at Comic-Con last week).

It marks the fourth visit to Zff for Stone, who was previously the subject of a tribute strand and most recently screened his film Savages as the festival’s opening night gala in 2012.

Watch: The Director of 'Criminal' Is In Awe of His Accidental 'JFK' Reunion

26 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you've never seen JFK before, watching it will probably blow your mind a little bit. Not because of its swirling conspiracy theories (it also doesn't matter if you believe any of it-- the drama of it all is simply fantastic), but because its cast is simply unbelievable. You basically can't go 10 minutes of watching JFK without going, "Wait, this person is in this, too?!" And that's saying something considering JFK is approximately 10,000 hours long. It is an all time great cast. The JFK cast is also huge, which is why it's understandable that director Ariel Vromen didn't even realize he had cast a JFK reunion when he was putting together his own twisty thriller, Criminal. Kevin Costner stars as an inmate implanted with a CIA agent's...

"It's what people call surveillance capitalism," director Oliver Stone says of hit mobile game Pokemon Go...

One of the more unusual movies at San Diego Comic-Con was Snowden, director Oliver Stone's forthcoming film about controversial whistle-blower, Edward Snowden. One of the few movies at Comic-Con that isn't fantastical or superhero-based in some way, Snowden stars Joseph Gordon Levitt as the former CIA employee who leaked an enormous amount of previously classified information onto the web.

During the panel discussion for that film, Stone brought Niantic's hit mobile app into a broader conversation about online surveillance. Warning of a "new level of invasion" into our private lives thanks to search giants like Google, Stone argued that "Pokemon Go kicks into that."

"It's not for profit at the beginning but it becomes for profit at the end," Stone added, "because it creates its own awareness and it gets »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Hunted in New Trailer For Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’

21 July 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

History was made today as Oliver Stone had his first appearance at Comic-Con and, aside from waxing poetic about the dangers of Pokemon Go and how it could lead to totalitarianism, he brought with him a new trailer for his latest feature, Snowden. While we already have Laura Poitras‘ Oscar-winning Edward Snowden exposé Citizenfour, this one finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the whistle-blower.

Diving into his time before the major events, when he served the country by enlisting in the United States Army Reserve and then working for the CIA, it marks Stone’s first time shooting digitally, rather fittingly. With a cast also including Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson, and Timothy Olyphant, check out the new trailer and poster below:
