Overview

Oliver Stone is undoubtedly one of the most controversial filmmakers of his time. This impressive box set contains almost every one of his feature films and a trio of documentaries. Salvador, Platoon, Wall Street, Talk Radio, Born on the Fourth of July, The Doors, JFK, Heaven & Earth, Natural Born Killers, Nixon, U-Turn, Any Given Sunday, and the documentaries Oliver Stone's America, Looking for Fidel, and Persona Non Grata are all presented in the original aspect ratio. There is a smattering of extras across all the discs, but the only feature available only on this collection is an extended preview of Stone's historical epic Alexander, which was due to hit theaters less than six weeks after this box set was made available in stores.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
One of modern Hollywood's most consistently controversial and highly regarded filmmakers gets the grand treatment he deserves with this 12-movie collection -- a bracing case of energetic, visceral dramas. Included in the set is Stone's 2000 hit, Any Given Sunday, starring Al Pacino as an aging, burned-out football coach urged by ambitious franchise owner Cameron Diaz to spur his demoralized team to victory at any cost. The "Special Edition/Director's Cut" in this set includes six minutes of footage included in foreign prints of the film, and the double-disc DVD offers more than a dozen deleted or extended scenes, commentaries by Stone and supporting player Jamie Foxx, a behind-the-scenes documentary shot for HBO, and more. There's also a "Special Edition/Director's Cut" of JFK, Stone's most provocative film, which follows the attempts of New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner) to prove that the assassination of John F. Kennedy was undertaken by conspirators within the government. The double-disc DVD boasts Stone's feature-length audio commentary, deleted scenes, multimedia essays updating the debate on Kennedy's assassination, cast/crew bios, and an interview with ex-government official Fletcher Prouty. Natural Born Killers, -- featuring Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, and Robert Downey Jr. -- is Stone's inflammatory satire about dysfunctional miscreants whose violent excesses are eagerly chronicled by rabid media lapdogs. The DVD adds the director's Charlie Rose appearance defending the film, a documentary called "Chaos Rising," deleted scenes, an alternate ending, and extensive commentary by Stone.

Also included in this 2004 release are 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. Unlike previous box sets of the director's work, The Ultimate Oliver Stone Collection has nearly everything else his fans could want, including the Oscar-winning war epic Platoon, Heaven and Earth, Nixon, Talk Radio, and U-Turn, as well as his acclaimed documentaries Persona Non Grata and Looking for Fidel -- both of which make their DVD debuts here.
