My reaction to watching the trailer for Oliver Stone's upcoming "edgy" crime thriller, Savages, was, "Oliver Stone is finally making another Oliver Stone movie." This was followed by a thought about how safe the sometimes controversial director has been playing lately. But on reflection, I don't believe that assessment is completely accurate.
It's true that Stone's recent output seems somewhat anemic — a Wall Street sequel, a George W. biopic — and, with its violent imagery and Add editing, Savages looks to be a return to the director's mid-'90s coke-addled madness. But, in reality, Stone has always been a rather schizophrenic filmmaker, whipping back and forth between the inside and the outside.
When I think of Stone, I tend to think of flicks like Natural Born Killers and JFK — audacious experiments that tread the tenuous border between art and commerce. But when I look back on his entire output, that's not who Stone is.»
I wanted to start a new thread re predictions about the line-up of The 2012 Cannes Film Festival but God bless Yuku they would not permit me. Here is what was written about "Savages":I also like the chances of at least one major Hollywood feature among the line-up and this year it looks like Oliver Stone will be making it two films in a row after Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps played the fest in 2010. Universal moved Savages from a September release to July 6 and such a move has always had me thinking it was because the film had found a place on the Croisette. After all, it wouldn't hurt to have John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Salma Hayek and Benicio del Toro walking the red carpet along with the rest of the film's cast which includes Blake Lively, Emile Hirsch, Demian Bichir, Mia Maestro, Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch.Let's hope it is included; it means photos and more photos of Benicio
