Oliver Stone Talks W
USA Today has a lengthy interview with Oliver Stone today in advance of the October 17 opening of a little something called W. Clearly, the writer's seen W, which has yet to screen for critics, and describes it thusly: "The movie portrays Bush as charming, spiritually devout and well-intentioned but also reckless, a kind of daddy's boy, always relying on his father, wealthy friends or Bush family connections to launch his career forward or extract him from trouble." At the end, Stone recounts his one and only meeting with his fellow Yalie, which occurred at a Republican fund-raiser in Los Angeles in 1998, when Bush was Texas governor. Here's the latest TV spot, if nothing else for Talking Heads fans. --Robert Wilonsky
