Last night before heading off to bed I decided to catch up with the days world events when I stumbled across this short debate (nearly 50 mins) on
Hollywood and its fascination with war.
Now normally I would've hit the big red button on the remote to turn the thing off, but after seeing the guests included Oliver Stone and Michael
Moore, I thought I'd give it a viewing.
So another cup of cocoa was made and I settled down to watch.
WOW...Turned out to be a very captivating, consuming and engrossing deliberation.
Typical,Lol, Couldn't find it at first, but after some digging here it is, hope you enjoy it.
War is hell, but for Hollywood it has been a Godsend, providing the perfect dramatic setting against which courageous heroes win the hearts and minds
of the movie going public.
The Pentagon recognises the power of these celluloid dreams and encourages Hollywood to create heroic myths; to rewrite history to suit its own
strategy and as a recruiting tool to provide a steady flow of willing young patriots for its wars.
Joining us as guests: Oliver Stone, the eight times Academy Award-winning filmmaker; Michael Moore, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker; and
Christopher Hedges, an author and the former Middle East bureau chief of the New York Times.
