Praise For The Oliver Stone Experience

"’s the must-have movie book of the fall...It’s a film school in book form – enlightening, entertaining, and essential."

— Flavorwire

“. . . a lavish coffee-table book full of images and introspection. . .”

— Parade online

“…definitive…everything you could possibly want to know about the filmmaker."

— AM New York

". . . this lavish, beautiful book is as much a piece of serious criticism as it is an expression of pure movie love."

— The Miami Herald

"Jammed with lengthy Q&As with two-time Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, as well as news clippings, scripts, rare photos, and memos, Matt Zoller Seitz's 480-page book is, like the filmmaker and his movies, obsessive and captivating."

— Variety online

“Seitz’s auteurist biography is kaleidoscopic in its dispensing of intimate photographs, archival images and pop culture iconography. Just as Stone’s own kinetic editing explodes in his films, so does the book conflate dynamic interviews and critical analyses with taut narrative urgency.”
