Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone has taken on three American presidents in JFK, Nixon and W. and the most controversial aspects of the war in Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July. He looked at the greed of the financial industry in the Hollywood hit Wall Street and its forthcoming sequel. In South of the Border, his latest documentary out this week in the United States, Stone takes a road trip across South America, meeting with seven presidents about the revolution sweeping the continent. The leftist transformation in the region might be ignored or misrepresented as nothing but "anti-Americanism" in the corporate media, but this film seeks to tell a different story. Stone joins us along with the film’s co-writer, the Pakistani British author and activist Tariq Ali.

Oliver Stone meets Amy Goodman. It doesn't get any better than that! (Tariq and Juan are great too, but Stone and Goodman have been heros of mine for a long time). I would have to disagree with Tariq's comment about the lack of a "Platoon" type movie about the Iraq war.
For those who want to see a critical, dramatization of the Iraq war should check out Brian De Palma's Redacted(director of Scareface, which was written by Stone). Trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=J9pASqOR6Ag&feature=related. Maybe Tariq never saw it, it was largely ignored in the press.
Even John Pilger gave the film a great review.
