The bête noire of the establishment, a thorn in the side of traditional Hollywood, or a left-leaning polemiscist who doesn’t let facts bother him…?

Whatever your view of Oliver Stone, the filmmaker has been marching to the beat of his own drum for decades.

And the release of Showtime series, The Putin Interviews, worked well to reintroduce him to a controversial world.

When I spoke to him, he was brawling and bristling in tone, but gave a standard account of himself: if you take an opinion of him into the room, you’d better be prepared to back it up.

This is by me, for the New Statesman.
