Product Description

Theres a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesnt know it. Oliver Stone sets out on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream medias misperception of South America while interviewing seven of its elected presidents. In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nestor Kirchner, Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! 19 Aug 2011
By jav
Format:DVD
So it's not objective and it's sensationalist. Well we get unobjective, sensationalist views everyday from our local branch of corporate news. This, at least, is a different view. Lots of people have no idea whatsoever of what's going on in South America. Even if you don't agree with the ideology's being portrayed, there aren't many other movies about any of this, let alone with Stone's craftsmanship.
Funny and entertaining, the Stone's and Moore's of the world are just as necessary as the Pilger's and Chomsky's. If you consider the fact that Pilger and Chomsky have been trying to open our eyes for decades and very few people seem to be paying attention; effective, popular story tellers may be more necessary than objective, academic ones.

Worth it just to hear Kirchner relating his incredulity when hearing Bush say openly that he believed war to be the best method for solving a country's economic problems! After getting over the shock, I realized it did explain an awful lot of his decisions as president.
Lord help us.

REALLY ENJOYABLE AND INFORMATIVE. OK, MAYBE A LITTLE ONE-SIDED, BUT WHATS NOT TO LIKE ABOUT THESE GLIMPSES OF CHAVEZ/ MORALES ET. AL.COMPARE THIS TO THE SANITIZED POLITICS WE HAVE HERE IN ENGLAND, ALL "SUITS" AND PUBLIC SCHOOL BOYS.
WELL DONE OLIVER STONE; KEEP ON ROCKIN FOR A FREE WORLD!

1.0 out of 5 stars We should stone Stone. 5 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
How can you be so One sided?
Stone has obviously never suffered under those regimes. Mr. Stone, try to earn a living in Caracas for a while, go shopping, send your kids to school, loose your dignity, then we talk. Then make a movie about South America.
Down with Stone.
