Michael Douglas never actually says the line “greed is good” in Wall Street, the seminal stockbroking drama that Oliver Stone deposited in theaters 30 years ago this December. It’s one of those infamous, constantly misquoted movie lines, up there with “Play it again, Sam” (it’s “Play it, Sam”) and “If you build it, they will come” (“If you build it, he will come”).
Oliver Stone could not think of one negative thing to say about Vladimir Putin, so Stephen Colbert helped him.
The director Oliver Stone (Snowden, JFK, Natural Born Killers) spent a number of hours with Vladimir Putin between 2015 and 2017. The interviews aren’t combative — Stone did not arrive in Moscow on a mission to condemn Putin to his face, or to confront him about Russian espionage in America and elsewhere. Instead, Stone adopts an approach that is best described as “the flexible way” — which happens to be the phrase Putin uses to describe his life-long hobby, the daily practice of the martial art of judo.

When the first trailer for the Oliver Stone-directed biopic Snowden was released online in April, it presented a good look at how the film would shape NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s story as a thriller full of intrigue, technology, and even a little sex. “Nothing Will Prepare You for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Snowden Voice,” read MTV’s peg. “Joseph Gordon-Levitt Nails Voice of Snowden,” opined Moviefone.
Director at panel warns audience of "surveillance capitalism”: "They are data mining every person in this room."

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who stars as the fugitive whistleblower, and Shailene Woodley, who plays his long-suffering girlfriend, joined Stone and the disembodied Snowden for a 30-minute Q&A after the Thursday event.
