The collection is rounded out by newly remastered versions of Born on the Fourth of July, Stone's scathing indictment of the Vietnam War as seen through the eyes of wounded veteran Ron Kovic played by Tom Cruise; The Doors, his vivid fictionalization of the life and times of rock star Jim Morrison Val Kilmer; and Wall Street, his now-legendary parable of Reagan-era greed starring Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen. The documentary Oliver Stone's America is a comprehensive look at the director's career that includes interviews with his colleagues and rare, behind-the-scenes footage. While Stone's Oscar-winning war epic Platoon is sadly missing in the package, this sextet is a stunning reminder that Stone is perhaps our greatest chronicler of America -- a man whose films both electrify history and -- as with Natural Born Killers -- make history, too. Stone-ophiles may prefer the even heftier ten-volume box - which includes the seven titles mentioned here, plus Heaven and Earth, Nixon, Talk Radio, and U-Turn.
