The movie was considered mainstream by many but was still opened along with Ted, an adult comedy movie about a Teddy Bear that came to life and starred Mark Whalberg

He continues to speak about his movie Snowden which starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the N.S.A whistle-blower, that leaked the fact that the American government spies on every citizen.

The movie struggled to receive finance due to the sensitivity of its plot.


Putin is obviously a canny politician. What do you suspect he believed he had to gain by talking with you?


Stone thinks his intention was, as mentioned multiple times in the documentary by Putin himself was to have a sensible conversation as two mature adults.

And even though the relationship with the USA was better when the documentary was being made, he still believes in Putin even in the current climate.

Stone believes that Putin had done nothing immoral and didn’t meddle in the 2016 elections that made Donald Trump the president.


Do you think you’ve made your last Hollywood film?


To quote him “I would have no problem doing another one, but I don’t feel it right now. Frankly, I did 20, and I got worn out.”
