I love the flexibility of Indian cinema: Oliver Stone
Academy Award winning Hollywood filmmaker Oliver Stone said that he loved the flexibility of Indian cinema to switch from musicals to tragedies.
Stone landed here from Singapore to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the ongoing Mumbai Film Festival and to show his documentary “South of the Border”.
Stone said that though he had studied the films of Satyajit Ray and liked them, over the years he had not been able to keep himself updated with what is happening in Indian cinema.
“You are the most prolific industry. I cannot keep up. I can’t say I have any close understanding of it at all. However, I love the fact that you can switch from musical to romance to tragedy. I love that flexibility and that mentality,” he said.
