Ojo Latino – Oliver Stone

Ojo Latino is a series by Néstor Sánchez Cordero. Nestor writes, “I just came from the Silverdocs festival in Silver Spring to see the screening of “South of the Border” of Oliver Stone, who is featured in this week’s OjO Latino. What’s your favorite Stone movie? Mine is “Salvador”.”

Anyone else hit Silverdocs?

Mine favorite Oliver Stone film is Born on the Fourth of July. What’s yours?

  • Great pictures. And before today, I had no idea he was of Latin American descent!

    • Wikipedia:

      Stone was born in New York City, the son of Jacqueline (née Goddet) and Louis Stone, a stockbroker.[2] He grew up affluent and lived in townhouses in Manhattan and Stamford, Connecticut. His father was Jewish and his mother a Roman Catholic of French birth, and Stone was raised an Episcopalian as a compromise[3] but has since converted to Buddhism. Stone attended Trinity School before his parents sent him away to attend The Hill School, an exclusive college-preparatory school in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. His parents divorced when he was 15, due to his father’s extramarital affairs with the wives of several family friends.[4] Stone’s father was also influential in obtaining jobs for his son including work on a financial exchange in France, where Stone often spent his summer vacation with his maternal grandparents, a job that proved inspirational to Stone for his movie Wall Street. Stone eventually graduated from The Hill School in 1964.

    • ¡Gracias! Stone is not of Latin American descent but many of us consider him another Latino…


      • I agree, Nestor, he could definitely pass for someone who is of Latin descent. IN fact he bares a strong resemblance to my uncle back in Mexico City.

  • a bit too much paranoia and conspiracy theory in his films for me.

    • That’s just what the military industrial complex wants you to believe! 🙂

      I don’t think Stone has made a good movie since Platoon.

  • whatever his upbringing or heritage, oliver stone is cool as hell.

  • I did the Oliver Stone’s America class at American back in the 90s. I will never again watch an Oliver Stone movie!! It was way too much for me.

    My husband was at this one yesterday – my understanding is it does a disservice to the conversation about Chavez and Venezuela.

  • I thought he was excellent as Nicky Arnstein opposite Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl!
