Marc Cooper has reprinted an interview he did with Oliver Stone for Playboy Magazine in 1988. Since most of his recent movies have been, let's be honest, not all that good, it's sometimes easy to forget just how good his work in the 1980's was. This interview was done after winning the Oscars for Platoon, at around the time that Wall Street was released. Topics covered include Stone's Vietnam experiences, his early, privileged life growing up in Manhattan, the movie industry, drugs, and much more. It's quite long, but it's a fascinating read. Have a look.
