    Stone on Snowden

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 07/10/2016

The fuzzy line between glory and shame of American policy is also his favourite subject, such as in the Vietnam War-set Platoon (1986), Wall Street (1987), Born On The Fourth Of July (1989) and World Trade Center (2006).
