Keanu

Keanu is fun, and even sometimes outright hilarious, but it doesn’t live up to the skills of its central performers.

"The Oliver Stone Experience," my next director book, to be published in 2015

Dear readers:

Here is the official announcement of my next director book, which will reunite me with the same team that produced my last book. — MZS

 

ABRAMS is proud to announce the Fall 2015 publication of The Oliver Stone Experience. The book is a comprehensive retrospective of Stone’s life and career, from his New York City childhood and service in Vietnam to his work as an Oscar-winning, politically and stylistically radical filmmaker. 

Award-winning writer and film critic Matt Zoller Seitz, author of the bestselling The Wes Anderson Collection, started interviewing Stone for the book last year. It will feature critical essays about Stone’s work, including Midnight Express, Scarface, Salvador, Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, The Doors, JFK, Natural Born Killers, Nixon, U-Turn, Any Given Sunday, W, Savages,and his epic revisionist history documentary series The Untold History of the United States. The beautifully designed book will include scene analyses, script pages and extensive footnotes, as well as personal documents and photos provided by Stone. Eric Klopfer, Seitz's editor on The Wes Anderson Collection, signed the deal with Seitz’s literary agent, Amy Williams of McCormick & Williams.
