Three-time Oscar winner Oliver Stone has caused a stir both on screen and off. His CV is mighty impressive when you run through the list of hits: Midnight Express (the script), Platoon, Wall Street, JFK, The Doors, Natural Born Killers and this year's sentimental extravaganza, World Trade Centre, to namecheck a few. Well, he's on our turf at the mo, so here's your opportunity to get acquainted with the chap personally. Since he's not one known for holding his tongue or his temper it could prove both enlightening and incendiary. Head down to the NFT and throw him a curveball, it's sure to be exhilarating. Drugs and conspiracy theories are a good bet. Or you could wade right in there by asking him a question on Alexander, with the opening gambit "what the ****?".
NB: you can also catch Oliver Stone the next day (14/12 at 7pm) when he gives a masterclass with Seamus McGarvey at the Cineworld Haymarket.
