Skip to comments.Oliver Stone Made 'Wall Street' Sequel Because Capitalism Caused a 'Collapse of Our Society'
Posted on 03/14/2010 12:18:56 AM PST by 198ml
Oliver Stone's latest attack on American capitalism - "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" is finally hitting theaters April 2010, twenty-three years after its predecessor. According to Michael Lewis, who interviewed the moviemaker for his latest Vanity Fair piece, Stone's biggest problem with the sequel was making a movie based on helplessly diabolical bankers, actually watchable.
Lewis wrote that Stone - an ardent left-wing ideologue, friendly acquaintance to Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, a moral relativist concerning Hitler and Stalin, and director of "W" and "Platoon" - felt an obligation to reverse the societal damage and unintended consequences of the first installment.
"As a vehicle of change ... the movie was a catastrophe," Lewis wrote. It apparently inspired, rather than deterred, a generation of young men to enter the field and become the next Gordon Gekko (the "diabolical money manager" played by Michael Douglas).

I just looked out the window, and yep, there was all of our society, collapsed in a pile.
Is he refusing all profits from the movie?
Wouldn’t want any of that bloody capitalist money staining his hands, now would he?
“capitalist” attack America all the time I’m glad someone’s fighting back.
Communists (including the ever contemptible rich ones) are as opportunistic as they are evil.
Barring that, the elimination of electronic communications might be sufficient to protect us all.
Did somebody yell "EGOTISM!!!" just now? I thought I heard it.
It’s a damned shame that when Oliver Stone was in Nam that he wasn’t captured by Sir Charles and shown what a great system the communists run when they are in charge. It’s hard to believe Stone fought for our side by his actions these days...
“I just looked out the window, and yep, there was all of our society, collapsed in a pile.”
This is what happens to people when they fornicate their brains out. The pile is himself. He had his day, as did Danny Glover, but he cannot let go of his desire for the limelight. Seem to remember sumthin’ about Lot’s wife looking back and turning to a Stone.
What he really means is freedom/liberty caused the collapse of our society. End freedom/liberty, now.
I think I’ll pass.
If capitalism collapsed our society, this dumbass wouldn't be making a movie.
