Virgin Film by Stephen Lavington
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As a director he made one of the all-time great Vietnam war movies, Platoon, earning him a second Oscar. Going on to helm such defining cinematic works as Wall Street, Born on the Fourth of July (for which he received his third Oscar), JFK and Natural Born Killers. Using the successful format of previous books in the Virgin Film series, this guide will include categories such as Casting, Cut Scenes, Music, Conspiracy Theory? and Controversy, information on Stone's inspiration behind his films - both writing and directing - and his flexible approach to historical figures and events, especially given his newest effort Alexander, due for release in autumn 2004. Stone is arguably one of the most controversial film directors who has ever lived. Whether the subject is war, politics, sport or the defining aspects of an era, Stone is an expert at polarising audience views. An essential reference of the most influential filmmakers of the last twenty-five years.
