Sound On Sight Podcast Rewind – Episode #230: Oliver Stone Special

Back in 1987, writer/director Oliver Stone, fresh off the warm critical reception and multiple Oscar wins for Platoon, released Wall Street, a wildly successful drama centered around a good ol’ boy (Charlie Sheen) and the corrupt business mogul, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), who tries to corrupt him. Over two decades later, Stone has returned to Gekko and the world of Wall Street with a sequel, Money Never Sleeps, meant to address our current financial crisis. We’ll be talking about both movies, as well as revisiting Stone’s surprisingly uncontroversial take on 9/11, the survival drama World Trade Center.
