(1946-) US film director, screenwriter, and producer. Although working in Hollywood’s mainstream, he has tackled traditionally “difficult” social and political themes with great success. A former infantryman in Vietnam, Stone is perhaps best known for his trilogy of films on the Vietnam war Platoon 1986, Born on the Fourth of July 1989, which dealt with America’s treatment of its war veterans, and Heaven and Earth 1993, the biography of a Vietnamese woman.
His other notable films include Wall Street 1987, the epic-scaled JFK 1991, and Natural Born Killers 1994, an ultra-violent satire on media irresponsibility.
He won his first Academy Award for his screenplay for Midnight Express 1978. His other film credits include Scarface 1983 (screenplay), Salvador 1986 (director, screenplay, producer), Reversal of Fortune 1990 (producer), and The Doors 1991 (director, screenplay).
