In the 1980s and '90s, Oliver Stone was one of the most vital and high-profile directors working in Hollywood. Platoon, JFK, Natural Born Killers and more collected awards - or controversy - but were never ignored. It’s been a while since Stone has demanded that kind of attention, but a new book about Stone by critic Matt Zoller Seitz aims to revive his reputation. This week, Seitz shares his Top 5 Oliver Stone Scenes. Plus, Adam and Josh give Stone’s '89 Oscar-winner BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY the Sacred Cow treatment and review Stone's latest, SNOWDEN.

This episode of Filmspotting is brought to you by Squarespace, Blue Apron and The Girl on the Train.
