Stone on YouTube

5 04 2008

Watched some interviews with Stone on YouTube. Also a long speech he had at University of Regina. Well, sometimes he can speak clearly, I wish he would do this in the Platoon commentary. In his speech he quotes Roethke’s line: “In the dark time the eye beginns to see”, which is also a favorite quote of Viggo Mortensen, these were the first words he said in the¬†Lord of the Rings¬†documentary. Made me jump hearing these words unexpectedly.

Stone also mentioned that he’d dreamt of being ship merchant as a young man. This dream is described in his novel.
