Nathan Gardels

The great paradox of the internet age is that ever-greater connectivity also means ever-greater capacity for surveillance -- both by governments and the private sector digital companies. In an exclusive interview with director Oliver Stone about his new movie, "Snowden," we discuss the intrusion of intelligence agencies into personal data floating around in cyberspace, as well as what Stone considers the totalitarian creep of "surveillance capitalism" by the likes of Facebook and Google, which monitor and market your online profile.

In this year of mostly misfiring big budget genre films, the rather belated return of star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to the 'Jason Bourne' espionage franchise is a rare solid success.

Oliver Stone

I'm praying still for Bernie Sanders, because he's the only one willing, at least in the name of fiscal sanity, to cut back on our foreign interventions, bring the troops home, and with these trillions of dollars no longer wasted on malice, try to protect the "homeland" by actually rebuilding it and putting money into its people, schools, and infrastructure.

Robert Orlando | Posted 11.17.2014 | Entertainment
Robert Orlando

Stone's confrontation with myth should be embraced, yet I don't think this simplistic Left vs. Right dichotomy, while making good drama, is helpful. Nor is limiting evil to capitalism, when the bloody saga of state Communism has been condemned prima facie by 20th century history.
