Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While this monumental retrospective of Oliver Stone's directorial career doesn't include Salvador or Platoon--Stone's early, acknowledged masterpieces of history and remembrance--it certainly sheds some light on the more controversial arc of his work ever since.

Beginning with 1987's Wall Street, Stone's barbed tragedy about corporate raiders and blinding greed during the Reagan years, this cinematic six-pack represents a curious odyssey of generational touchstones, outright obsessions, and feverish experimentation. 1994's Natural Born Killers, for instance, is an explosive critique of inflamed media in a society of hapless onlookers. A wildly ambitious farce about two lovers who defy TV-manufactured perceptions by becoming notorious murderers, Killers pushes the limits of screen violence, visual literacy, and the mixed-media technique (juggling film stocks, incorporating video, etc.) that Stone introduced in JFK. If the result is somewhat cold and forced, it's also brazen.

Most significant is the way this collection underscores Stone's drive to fuse historical drama with lingering emotions about the past. Stone, a Vietnam War vet, revisits that haunting debacle here in the masterful Born on the Fourth of July. Yet some of his most famous efforts still draw heaps of scorn for narrative hubris and factual recklessness. (Does anyone really believe John F. Kennedy was assassinated during a Lyndon Johnson coup d'état?) But time, as this collection proves, is on Stone's side. Eventually, JFK and The Doors will be seen not as a failed objective history, but as the experience of a tumultuous era in the imagination of a man who lived through it all and can't shake it off.

The collection concludes with the unexpectedly entertaining football saga Any Given Sunday. After this came Stone's humanitarian relief drama, Beyond Borders (not included), which found the director on familiar footing. As Stone's legacy continues to grow, there is a remarkable career here to revisit with these six films. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Collection of Work By A Great Artist. January 31, 2001
Format:DVD
Here we have one of the greatest collections of film work ever assembled by a filmmaker. The work of Oliver Stone stands as one of the greatest creative bodies of work in the history of film. And sure, they are brilliantly filmed, written, performed and photographed, but Stone's work is appreciated because of the power and influence it weilds. Unlike typical directors, Stone's films make us think and look at ourselves in the mirror. Some of the films here like "JFK" and "Natural Born Killers" serve in fact, as important film documents of the 20th century. "Wall Street" is a brilliant study of greed in American society. It uses the world of the stock market as a backdrop to explore the themes of ambition, greed, lust and power. "Born On The Fourth Of July" is one of the best films ever about Vietnam, a powerful story about a man who thought he was doing the right thing for his country and returned a crippled, disillusioned man. "The Doors" is the greatest rock film of all time. Val Kilmer gives a stunning performance, almost on the verge of possession, as Jim Morrison. The concert scenes are amazing and with the authenticity of a documentary. It's also an effective study of how excess can kill a great artist. Then comes "JFK," the best film in the collection. Here Stone paints a disturbing, powerful portrait of the forces that killed John F. Kennedy. It is a study of how politics and power work in the world. "Natural Born Killers," a stunning stylish wild ride, is a brilliant satire about violence and our obsession with violence in the world. "Any Given Sunday" is the best football movie of all time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Oliver Stone Cult Collection November 25, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
First off, I'll say this: If you are considering buying this collection you have to be a big time Oliver Stone fan or a fan of at least one of the three films included.

This isn't the definitive Oliver Stone collection. These are also not his best films. There is no Born on the Fourth of July, Platoon, Wall Street or JFK in here. None of the films Stone has made that everyday cinema goers would know are in this collection. So if that's what you like, then stay away from this, you most likely won't enjoy it for what it's worth.

Now, if you happen to be a fan of one of the three films included or you like Stone's less mainstream material then for the $15.99 it is now ,I highly recommend it. If you like even just one film it's worth the price to get two of Stone's other passable pieces as well.

Included in this set is NATURAL BORN KILLERS(1994), ANY GIVEN SUNDAY(1999), and ALEXANDER(2004).

NATURAL BORN KILLERS (1994)

Overall: 4/5
FILM: 3/5
PICTURE: 2/5
AUDIO: 3/5
EXTRAS 4/5

First up is Natural Born Killers, which was arguably Stone's first major misfire in terms of critical acclaim (Next to Talk Radio and The Doors to some extent). NBK is an ultra-violent look at the way the media portray violence and inspires it by provoking crazy people to do crazy things to get noticed. The script was originally written by Quentin Tarantino, but Stone made a ton of changes to it and ultimately altered it far beyond the point where Tarantino calls it his script. Stone goes over the top with gratuitous violence and the movie never really KA-BOOM's with a hard punching theme. But it's got a lot of strong moments and is far from a terrible film.

4.0 out of 5 stars if only it had nixon January 17, 2001
Format:DVD
to be honest, while i am excited to have this box set in my hands, especially the remastered special edition of jfk, i am a bit disappointed. firstly, nixon isn't included (platoon isn't either, but i bought it the same day since it's an inexpensive dvd). i know nixon's in the 10-dvd set, but i think it fits nicely into the themes of this edition, although i'm not sure what dvd they would take out to fit it in (maybe any given sunday, but i'm sure the box wouldn't sell as much without his most lucrative film). so, no nixon, not too big of a problem. the second problem, and i think the bigger of the two, is the poor quality of the born on the 4th of july dvd. while not my favorite of his films, it is one of his least questionabley great films. there isn't the same kind of love/hate relationship that viewers and critics have with natural born killers. it doesn't achieve stone's trademark excesses, it's just an all around powerful film. thus, why wouldn't universal do a little more with the transfer (remaster it at least, anamorphic maybe). it really is a substandard transfer. the doors, jfk and natural born killers all got special edition treatment, so why not a film for which he was awarded an oscar? i really don't know, it just puzzles me why a box set that classifies itself as a fairly definitive collection of oliver stone's career (excluding of course salvador and platoon) would skimp on providing us with a definitive edition of born on the 4th. well, oliver stone's not a perfect man or a perfect director, so i guess it figures that this isn't the perfect box set. nonetheless, although i've complained for most of this review, the rest of the set is excellent. jfk, my favorite, is finally given its deserved treatment on dvd--excellent transfer, commentary, to name a few.
