"William Oliver Stone" (born September 15, 1946) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer and veteran/military veteran. Stone came to public prominence between the mid-1980s and the early 1990s for writing and directing a series of films about the Vietnam War, in which he had participated as an infantry soldier. Many of Stone's films focus on contemporary and controversial American political and cultural issues during the late 20th century.
Stone's films often combine different camera and film formats within a single scene as evidenced in JFK (film)/JFK, Natural Born Killers, and Nixon (film)/Nixon.
