Hollywood director Oliver Stone expected negative criticism of his
movie World Trade Center, because it’s “fashionable”to hate his films.
The 59-year-old movie-maker took considerable flak for his unsettling 1991 film JFK, which has toughened him
against criticism. And although iencouraged the US Senate to start declassifying documents regarding the 1963assassination of former US President John F Kennedy, Stone is still aware his work is treated with caution.
He says, “It’s fashionable to hate my movies. No movie in the history of pictures took more s**t than JFK.
“I was trying to do my best to give an alternative version of what I thought might have happened, but it wasn’t understood.”
