One of my best things of last year was to see the movie, "Snowden."  If you have not seen it, I will fight you.  I also saw a lot of other movies last year, free from the library.  That includes, "W.," also by Oliver Stone, which was also very good.  These, and other movies, like, "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," (bad movie), gave me a general view on the past decade or so, (which is important because I am an alien without a TV, or YouTube).

Oliver Stone's, "Wall Street," has always been at the top of my list, because I always trusted that it was a sardonic critique of rogue corporate profligacy and personal corruption, rather than another 1980's pro-Big-Business adventure, with the added addendum of, "oh, gee, things went a little wrong there."  Knowing that it was made by Oliver Stone makes me confident of the former.

Stone made a follow up of Wall Street, named, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which I have never seen.  But I was lucky to see the movie, "The Big Short, " which I had really wanted to see.  This added to the Big Picture of the last decade or so.  It has all been one Big Mistake - one big mistake that people have loved to perpetrate - like a practical joke on some unknown who happens to be SELF.  Also lending themselves to these dystopic times, were the movies, Minority Report, The Hunger Games and Seven Psychopaths.

I happened to look up Oliver Stone on Wikipedia the other day.  It turns out that he basically supported the same candidates as I did in 2008, 2012, and 2016.  (Although, I might not have supported Obama in 2012 - my journal posts will reveal that.  I did support Ron Paul as the GOP runner, even though his domestic policies, "made no sense."  I don't remember who I finally supported).  For another thing, Stone's opinions on Wikileaks, Ukraine, etc., very close to mine.  I think he should get together with Glen Greenwald, Snowden/Assange, Farage, RFK Jr., and others, and start a global POLITICAL PARTY.  Cuz ain't nothin else workin here.  From Wikipedia:

WikiLeaks

Oliver Stone is a vocal supporter of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Stone signed a petition in support of Assange's bid for political asylum in June 2012.[64] In August 2012, he penned a New York Times op-ed with filmmaker Michael Moore on the importance of WikiLeaks and free speech.[65] Stone visited Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in April 2013 and commented, "I don't think most people in the US realize how important WikiLeaks is and why Julian's case needs support." He also criticized two upcoming WikiLeaks films from Alex Gibney and Bill Condon.[66]

In June 2013, Stone and numerous other celebrities appeared in a video showing support for Chelsea Manning.[67][68]

Ukraine

In December 2014, Stone made statements supporting the Russian government's narrative on Ukraine, portraying the 2014 Ukrainian revolution as a CIA plot and former Ukrainian president (who was ousted as a result of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution) Viktor Yanukovych, whose responsibility for the killing of protesters is claimed by the new Ukrainian government, as a legitimate president forced to leave Ukraine by "well-armed, neo-Nazi radicals."[69][70][71][72][73][74] The University of Toronto's Stephen Velychenko, the author of several books on Ukrainian history, and James Kirchick of The Daily Beast criticized Stone's comments and plans for a film.[75][76]
