  • Arts of War on the Web » Oliver Stone’s ‘Untold’ U.S. History
    and self righteous hyperbole Mr Stone is his own narrator accuracy is sometimes hard to find Mary McNamara the Los Angeles Times TV critic had a similar assessment The series she wrote is a hodgepodge of terrific if often disturbing historical footage and bizarre theatrical asides It seems more than anything a response to the notion of American exceptionalism though it s difficult to imagine that those Americans who do believe as Stone puts it that America is the center of the universe and always the good guy will be swayed by him The series narrative she says is too often just as one note as the versions Stone seeks to replace Stone McNamara concludes presents his case with little recognition of the social political and psychological complexities that dominate much of human development turning it intentionally or not into an alternative mythology that relies far more on broad stroke storytelling than rigorous analysis Comments Off on Oliver Stone s Untold U S History Posted on November 12th 2012 in Documentaries History On TV Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015 Herbert Schandler 1928 2015 Search for Categories Archives Art Art Exhibits Artistic Queries Arts on the Web Book News Book Talk Comic Books
