Who is this Persona Non Grata?, 12 July 2003

It seems to me that quite a few USA citizens might be looking this documentary the wrong way. In this documentary we get the latest of the Palestinian conflict, we get both side of the story.

Oliver Stone is constantly pressing on the politics and terrorists, he wants to get answers and hopefully get the conflict solved. But there is also a feeling of invasion from the camera operators, going around in the background, the unstable camera movements and violent edition. This is a style associated both to Oliver Stone and the MTV generation, but it's not gratuitous, this invasion is the only real invasion.

Oliver Stone surrounds himself with young people, and he is in a way making a movie of them, their reactions to the conflict. He wants them to look at what their country is doing. He also wants the viewer to be conscious of his presence in this movie, we are this invading eye, we are this Persona Non Grata.
