Oliver Stone Watches Dr. Strangelove with Vladimir Putin
All the way through this clip, Oliver Stone sucks up to Putin - and continually criticizes the United States. I found it quite sickening to watch. Putin actually lectures Stone of the importance of avoiding unilateral action (1:07)
How on earth could Oliver Stone have sucked up to a cretin like Vladimir Putin?
How do you say “bizarre-o” in Russian?
Putin was openly homophobic in the documentary [his interviews with Vladimir Putin], in addition to being extremely misogynistic while claiming that only women have bad days and that he is far superior. While insisting that he would never shower next to a gay man, Putin gave an incredibly bizarre response: “Why provoke him? But you know, I’m a judo master.”
During the production of the documentary, Stone was strangely receptive of many of Putin’s stances and even said that it was wrong to demonise him the way western media did. All those comments have aged very poorly now but given the amount of access that Stone got inside the country, it would be safe to assume that some sort of deal was already in place when Putin agreed to the documentary.
Filmmaker and conspiracy theorist Oliver Stone has made no secret of his admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, but now he has taken it to a whole new level by trying to make him his 22-year-old daughter’s godfather.
“Does she want to become an Orthodox Christian?” Putin asked when Stone floated the idea during a sit-down in the Kremlin.
“We’ll make her that [Orthodox],” Stone replied, according to a transcript of the interview put out by the Kremlin Friday.
