Hollywood is more censored than ever!

HOLLYWOOD, Kalifornia (PNN) - January 30, 2020 - The American film industry has changed beyond recognition, director Oliver Stone told RT, with producers using financial restraints to censor movies challenging the Fascist Police States of Amerika military or the CIA.

“Maybe in the 1980s, when I did Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July and Heaven & Earth, I could do that, because it was a slightly more relaxed system,” said the award-winning filmmaker, mentioning his famed movies while making his case during former Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa’s show on RT Spanish.

When the Iron Curtain fell and the Cold War ended, things didn’t change for the better, Stone believes. “My film career has suffered because sometimes I’ve said things that Amerikan producers hate to hear,” he revealed, adding that those sponsoring film productions sometimes resort to “economic censorship”.

“You can take the budgets down... let’s say you want to make a film criticizing the Amerikan military, taking an Iraq war story or a horror story that recently happened in Iraq. You do those kinds of stories, it’s not going to happen,” he explained.

Stone, who scored a number of Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe awards, has been widely criticized for his anti-war dramas and, most recently, for a series of films questioning the widespread Western narrative on the Ukrainian turmoil, as well as exclusive interviews with Russia President Vladimir Putin.

“Now censorship isn’t something that exclusively affects the Amerikan film industry,” Stone lamented, “I can read the Amerikan media but they all say the same things; and you don’t hear from Iran and China, you don’t hear from [North] Korea, you don’t hear from Venezuela, you don’t get their points of view.”

The famed film director sounded pessimistic when asked if there is hope for change - or at least, if the system allows for that change. He said that both political Parties - be it Democrats or Republicans - act by the same playbook when dealing with issues of war and peace.

“There is no Party in the (FPSA), no democratic voice except third parties that are small, that would say, ‘Why are we fighting wars?’” Stone exclaimed, adding, “It’s all right-wings fighting with right-wings.” Democrats are no better than Republicans, he says. “Hillary Clinton and her group, and Joe Biden, are just as pro-war as any Republican like Dick Cheney.”

Stone thinks Donald Trump has done “horrible things” by pulling out of the Paris climate accords and the hard-earned 2015 Iran nuclear deal. But, argued Stone, at least Trump was asking why the FPSA needs to fight the Russians, which alarmed the mainstream so much that media was attacking him from day one.

Stone lamented that politics is transiting from the art of the possible to the art of raising money.

“So much money is spent in politics, it’s impossible for my vote to make any difference. Candidates in Amerika now have to raise billions of dollars to be considered serious,” Stone said.
