Director Oliver Stone opened up about his forthcoming Edward Snowden biopic Snowden in a recent interview, and called most Hollywood war movies “bullsh*t” — thanks to the CIA.
“What you’re seeing is bullsh*t. And a lot of the war pictures you see, you don’t get, you know, you get it after the Pentagon has sanitized it. And they lie. They lie. As long as it is pro-American, that’s all that matters,” the three-time Oscar-winner said during an August 26 interview at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and Television.
Stone says “the Pentagon has taken over. CIA has taken over Hollywood in that sense.”
