Oliver Stone is one of the most provocative and influential filmmakers in modern times, directing such films as "Salvador," "Platoon," "Born on the Fourth of July," "Wall Street," and writing others such as "Scarface" and "Midnight Express." He and Michael discuss what it was like for Stone to be a student of Martin Scorsese at NYU film school, how Stone once drugged his father with LSD, why Stone might only make documentaries for now on, and the time Oliver invited Michael to the set of "The Doors.” They also discuss the challenges of getting films made that challenge conventional wisdom and whether there is a future for the theatrical experience in America.
