    But to be fair, Stone doesn't seem even to think he's offering the last word here. Rather, he's trying to offer the first word, or at least a first opportunity to hear the other side, unfiltered by television media. show more

    Unabashedly one-sided, this biography of Chávez - and several other Latin American politicians - does raise some valid concerns about what Stone calls the "manipulative power of the media." So it's too bad he's as guilty of partisanship as the right-wing outlets he reviles. show more

    Ray Bennett The Hollywood Reporter

    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

    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.
