I was wondering, which American Film Director can Oliver Stone be compared
to. For example where does he draw his cinematic style and narrative style
from. I am just curious to know because I enjoyed watching JFK, PLATOON AND
BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY.
Try Cecil B. DeMille, the other great self-declared (and self-important)
Hollywood historian. As for cinematic and narrative style: Don't be fooled
by the montage. These are very conventional films.
