Like I’ve said here before, I’m regarding US-american film director and writer Oliver Stone (*1946) as one of the important people of today. Not long ago I did a blog about his criticism of US-American Benevolence/Exzeptionalism.
Now there’s a new interview up, he’s granting Japanese NHK World News. It’s a well done journalistic piece of work, that gives you in about 10 Minutes a rough idea of his life, work and thinking.
“Now, that video is gone and that’s a great pity”
What Mr. Stone says at the 10-minute-mark depicts his humble approach of englightenment to me:
“We operate in ignorance. It’s our job as human beings to become more conscious. To try to find out.”
We don’t read (books) no more. That’s the Zeitgeist. There are other ways to improve your knowledge and all I can say is, that I’ve learned some stuff, watching his films:
- Platoon (1986)
- Wall Street (1987)
- Born on the Fourth of July (1989)
- Natural Born Killers (1994)
- Nixon (1995)
- Wall Street: Money never sleeps (2010)
- The Untold History of the United States (2012)
What he’s writing down on that board at the end of the interview – don’t you forget it!
