Few will stumble across OSA as it seems to only be part of The Oliver Stone Collection.
The Oliver Stone Collection is an exceptional value, by the way. 10 Special Edition versions for about $25 at Amazon.
Anyway, OSA is basically Oliver Stone talking for an hour plus. Occasionally he is asked questions but mostly he takes us where his thoughts naturally lead.
Unlike 90+% of directors, Oliver Stone knows how to make a useful point in a film. If you have listened to any of his commentaries you will already know this. OSA is an even more concentrated dose of Oliver, and it worked for me.
OSA rates a 3.5* out of 4*. Spring for The Collection -- more than worth it.
My first comment submission was ignored/discarded for some reason so this is a re-submitting.
