Stone The Crows!

Oliver Stone is well-known for his conspiracy movie JFK, which was as entertaining as any movie on the subject could be. My favourite part was where a homosexual character, David Ferrie (played by Joe Pesci) becomes very flustered explaining where he was on a particular Friday night and Jim Garrison (played by Kevin Costner) concludes that he must have been in Dallas assassinating John F. Kennedy. Or something like that.

The point at which the film completely jumps the shark is where Donald Sutherland appears as a deus ex machina to explain that the military industrial complex armtwisted Lyndon B. Johnson into having Kennedy assassinated.

Here's part one of two:

Oliver Stone also directed the movie Platoon featuring Truther extraordinaire, Charlie Sheen.

However, by all accounts his movie of the 9/11 tragedy, World Trade Center, plays it straight without any weird conspiracy theories. So, I am going to watch it in the next couple of days.

Finally, here's a great song that featured at the end of his turkey, Natural Born Killers...
