77-year-old Oliver Stone broke his silence for the first time in a long time. The author of such films as “Platoon”, “Natural Born Killers”, etc., commented on the current state of affairs in Hollywood and declared its “infantilization.” Ryan Gosling especially got it for playing the role of the Ken doll in the sensational summer hit “Barbie.” “Ryan Gosling is wasting his time doing this kind of nonsense for money. He should star in more serious films. He shouldn't be part of the infantilization of Hollywood. Now it’s all fantasy, fantasy, fantasy, including war films: fantasy, fantasy,” Stone said in an interview with City AM.
He also touched upon successful film franchises such as “The Fast and the Furious” and “John Wick.” Oliver enjoyed the films from the first series for the time being, but now the situation has changed. “(They) became like Marvel movies. I think, well, how many more collisions can you see? As for the film series with the participation of Keanu Reeves, the master completely smashed it to smithereens. “On the plane I watched John Wick, which is three and a half hours long. And I fell asleep approximately 778 times during this time. I would wake up and see him killing more and more people again. It resembles a world degenerating into illogicality."
Stone is the winner of four Oscars, including Best Adapted Screenplay for Midnight Express and Best Director for Born on the Fourth of July.
