Oliver Stone Making a Hugo Chavez Documentary

Posted: December 11th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Oliver Stone Making a Hugo Chavez DocumentarySubmit Comment
Variety is reporting that Oliver Stone is following up his President Bush biopic "W" with a documentary about Venezuela's controversial President Hugo Chavez.

Stone has been working on the untitled film for six months and is hoping to have it ready for next year. "It's about Chavez and the South American revolution," Stone said in a reference to the wave of leftist politicians elected to office in Latin America in recent years.

Stone was with Chavez in February during the dramatic rescue of hostages that Chavez helped to broker from the militant Columbian FARC group. The documentary will not focus on the rescue but rather the opposition Chavez has faced at home and abroad, especially from the Bush administration, which has been vocal in its distaste for the populist socialism espoused by Venezuela's president.

Stone is also working on a second doc, details of which he is keeping under wraps. He did, however, deny rumors that he's planning to make a film about Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. There have been reports in recent months that Ahmadinejad had authorized Stone to come to Iran and document him.

Stone's previous docs include "Comandante," about Cuban President Fidel Castro, and "Persona Non Grata," which began as a project about Yasser Arafat but eventually became a wider-reaching primer on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, after interviewing the now-dead Arafat proved an impossible task.

Of course he is. Stone is nothing but a hard left pos. I wish that f*cker would go live in Cuba or Venezuela. Or send his stupid ass back in time to live his days out on a Soviet collective farm.

We'll see if he actually does the story justice, as how bad that guy is. Stone will more than likely p*ssy out and sell out, making the guy and story PC, so no one's feelings get hurt.

So let me get this straight...A Hollywood Libtard is making a bio pic about a Socialist hero. Wow there is a surprise. I am sure he will be up for some awards from the rest of his comrads.

I doubt it...this seems more like a director playing it safe. He just made a moderately successful biopic and he's following it up with another biopic. He's trying to find a safe zone after bringing down the quality of his resume...but Hugo Chavez? Not a way to go for a director who's known more these days for his politics. This'll hurt him when reviews from the redbloods come in.
