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.
