Oliver Stone has to suck-up to AOL/Time-Warner Brass by interviewing some victims of Castro's treachery for his otherwise glowing documentary. The masterpiece is now ruined, I suppose.
Even Leni Riefenstahl didn't sit down and do a one-on-one with Hitler. Which makes me wonder. . . Why does the far-left hate Hitler and always compare him to Bush? I thought it was for his savage treatment of people, but since they don't mind seeing others handled brutally, it must be for another reason. And considering that their other cause célèbre is McCarthyism, I can only suppose that they really hate Hitler because he drove out the communists in the land of Karl Marx. It would also jive with the point that they never equate Hitler and Stalin who were contemporaries in more ways than one. With all the concentration camp films and documentaries that pour out of Hollywood, can anyone name a decent Gulag film?
