Oliver Stone Film Poll

The films of Oliver Stone have been on my mind a lot lately, so my newest poll here is focused on his controversial body of work as a director. I have pretty strong feelings about what I think stands as the best and worst of Stone's work, so I will be curious to see how the poll goes. Please vote for your favorites and we'll tally the results in a week or so and compare notes.

Just about to dive in and cast my vote. Great idea for a poll. It's all about voting this week, isn't it? Be interesting to see how NBK fares, which is about to get my tick.

My votes are for JFK and Wall Street. I like some of the others (Platoon, Nixon, Born on the 4th) but if I'm just picking "the best" then those two stand out beyond anything else for me.

And as far as NBK goes, put me in the "its awful" boat. Sorry Steve.

Anyways, I'm always up for a good poll!

Thanks for the thoughts guys...I can't wait to see the results of this one as some of them are already proving surprising.

I just cast my vote for this poll. Good poll. He has done some remarkable films over the years.

I voted as well. Hands down, JFK and NIXON are Stone's finest moments, IMO. They really are like two parts of a much larger film, I feel. But I do like quite a few of his films... altho, his later stuff (after NIXON) are real hit and miss.
