i'll admit that stone's recent work has been

not very good at all

these are his good to ok films:

# Born on the Fourth of July (1989)
# Talk Radio (1988)
# Wall Street (1987)
# Platoon (1986)
# Salvador (1986)

these are misses to just ok in my book:

# Alexander (2004) (written by)
# Any Given Sunday (1999)
# Nixon (1995) (written by)
# Natural Born Killers (1994)
# JFK (1991)
# The Doors (1991)

has not done anything outstanding since the 80s

Well this is the quote from the article that might make the families and others skittish - the other quotes from him in the article, well he can say what he wants now, the movie will speak for itself. It would be good if he made strictly a compassionate, emotional film about it..but do we need that? I don't know

In October 2001, Stone was quoted as referring to the attacks as a "revolt" against multinational corporations.

I'm not comfortable with a movie about 9/11 right now. They need to wait.

well we've already had docudrama's staring the guy who played president bush on trey parker and matt stone's "that's my bush" parody...

it's oliver stone's right to make a film if he so choses. i just hope he treads lightly and doesn't do anything to disrespect the memory of those who lost their lives, i.e. filling the thing with wacky conspiracy theories.

agreed on your list. Stone will be remembered as a giant of filmmaking; to bad his recent films suck.
