Oliver Stone

Stone at the 2016 [[San Diego Comic-Con]] William Oliver Stone (born September 15, 1946) is an American writer, filmmaker and conspiracy theorist. Stone won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay as writer of ''Midnight Express'' (1978). He also wrote the acclaimed gangster movie ''Scarface'' (1983). Stone achieved prominence as director/writer of the war drama ''Platoon'' (1986), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Director and the film received Best Picture. ''Platoon'' was the first in a trilogy of films based on the Vietnam War, in which Stone served as an infantry soldier. He continued the series with ''Born on the Fourth of July'' (1989)—for which Stone won his second Best Director Oscar—and ''Heaven & Earth'' (1993). Stone's other notable works include the Salvadoran Civil War-based drama ''Salvador'' (1986); the financial drama ''Wall Street'' (1987) and its 2010 sequel ''Money Never Sleeps''; the Jim Morrison biographical film ''The Doors'' (1991); the satirical black comedy crime film ''Natural Born Killers (1994);'' and a trilogy of films based on the American Presidency—''JFK'' (1991), ''Nixon'' (1995) and ''W.'' (2008). His latest film is ''Snowden'' (2016).

Many of Stone's films focus on controversial American political issues during the late 20th century, and as such were considered contentious at the times of their releases. They often combine different camera and film formats within a single scene, as demonstrated in ''JFK'', ''Natural Born Killers'', and ''Nixon''. Provided by Wikipedia
