Oliver Stone is one of the grand masters of American cinema.

A multiple Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director (Midnight Express, Scarface, Platoon, JFK, Natural Born Killers, Snowden), he is as well known for his outspoken, controversial political beliefs as he is for his innovative films.

Over the course of five years, Stone and author Matt Zoller Seitz discussed the arc of Stone's life and work with extraordinary candor.

The cinematic mastermind shares anecdotes about Vietnam, his childhood, his struggles with posttraumatic stress disorder, and his continual struggle to reinvent himself as an artist.

Seitz was given unprecedented access to Stone's personal archive, and these interviews are accompanied by never-before-seen material that dates back to Stone's childhood in the 1950s, including personal snapshots, private correspondence, annotated script pages and storyboards.
