  • Good-humored, illuminating and without cant, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone's documentary South of the Border is a rebuttal of what he views as the fulminations and lies of right-wing media at home and abroad regarding the socialist democracies of South America. show more

  • Though he lavishes praise on his subjects for being hyper-masculine and free-thinking, Stone is downright girlish in his devotion, scoffing at charges made against the leaders rather than examining them. show more

  • Engaging enough as polemics go, but unlikely to change many minds. show more

    At his hero worshipping worst, Oliver Stone continues to re-write history with another stupefying portrayal of left wing zealots who have stamped out all freedom of speech. Pathetic, Oliver. You should be ashamed.

    A 'soft documentary' from Oliver Stone; something we in the US dont arent commonly exposed to by our media. This is a documentary that needed to be presented with 2 parts, in order to add an additional layer of meat to the bones, if you will. Not a Michael Moore style documentary.
