If you've seen any of Oliver Stone's films, chances are strong that you've glimpsed his son, Sean. Sometimes, he's a key character (like young Jim Morrison in 'The Doors') and sometimes, he's just a tiny cameo (like "Fraternity Pledge #1" in 'W'). In any case, it looks like he's followed in his father's footsteps and has jumped behind the camera. In fact, his feature debut, a horror movie titled 'Greystone Park,' has a trailer and a release date.
I took very few notes as I watched Oliver Stone's 'Savages.' I basically have one phrase in large print in the center of the page: “I can't tell if I'm supposed to be taking this seriously.”
It's underlined. Three times.
'Savages' is nothing if not unique. Oh, the basic plot isn't unique - a group of crafty outsiders take on the mob – but the specifics are so peculiar that you'll feel compelled to both applaud and mutter WTF. Often at the same time.
