Is a Russian Oliver Stone going to make a movie about Donald Trump?

Analysis & Opinion, Politics, Russia

Vladimir Surin, director of the Moscow Center for the Study of Socially Significant Problems, says a Russian film director should make a film on Donald Trump analogous to the one US director Oliver Stone has made on Vladimir Putin, something that would allow Putin to explain himself and represent a breakthrough in US-Russian ties.

Stone’s film, Surin says, represents “the start of the geopolitical breakthrough toward the normalization and harmonization of Russian-American relations. The film of the American became an independent and powerful geopolitical factor. Such is the nature of our time.” And Russia must exploit this by responding in kind.

“‘No one besides us.’ This device of Russians in airborne forces can (and should!) be considered as a call to our great film directors. And we have a whole cohort of them: Mikhalkov, Govorukhin, Menshov and others,” Suring continues.

“We all must always remember and take into consideration that we live in an era when information decides everything. There is a super-important task which by itself seems not resolvable – the restoration of a strategic partnership of Russia and the US.” Take in isolation “this is a utopia.” But no one should forget that individuals make history.

According to the media expert, “the global crisis of democracy has a simple cause: democracy has blocked the role of the personality in history. Film, TV, IP-technologies are in a position to overcome this crisis. Speaking concretely: we must immediately organize the filming of a Russian movie, ‘An Interview with D. Trump.’”

“No one except for us [Russians],” he says, “will be able to pose to the American president those questions on which he would very much like to express himself.” Such a film would free Trump from the constraints the American establishment has sought to impose on him and his actions.

In sum, Surin concludes, “a Russian film about ‘the Kremlin’s henchman’ D. Trump will be something … [ellipsis in the original]. A talented conceptually developed film-interview with Trump would be worth an entire series of Russian-American negotiations. And such a series would follow…”

    Who would really care to watch a movie about da Drumpf?! It seems to me that only Russians even care about this propaganda movie about vlady bull$hitting oliver stone(d) – (i.e., 4 year old video of US Military being passed off to this a$$ as current day Russian ‘military power’?!? And he, stone, discounts the facts as ‘irrelevant’!?! He – stone – along with lying vlady are the only irrelevant things here!). Most Americans are clueless. I can’t find even one person here who’s even aware such a film was made… Don’t encourage prominent Russian film directors to waste their precious time on such utter nonsense as da drumpf – unless it is only for consumption by ignorant Russian Sheeple…

    Pompous Putin the Pederast will not have far to look for the makers of his new fantasy movie. For director, Dmitry Pinocchiovich Kiselyov (Moscow’s foremost propagandist, false weather reporter and 3rd biggest liar in Russia after Putin and Lavrov), would be a no brainer. As for the individual who could portray Donald Trump, who else other than Gerard Dingdongovich Depardieu, the former French actor who is providing the Russian dictator with French kisses in exchange for sanctuary from French tax authorities. However, Depardieu would have to wear a girdle to fit into a size 48 waist to impersonate Trump and would also have to practice making a perfect O between his forefinger and thumb. As for the rest of the cast, any starving Russian could fit the bill as all that they would cost would be a head of cabbage.

    is Oliver Stone a russian agent or just another useful idiot?

    • Dale Davies

      I am not so certain about “useful” but I can agree on the idiot part!

    • Turtler

      I would say “Both.”

      Though the idea that Ollie Stone will make one that is even remotely flattering to Trump strikes me as…. laughable, at least for now.

    We have seen the Buffoon Tycoon movie; You’re fired and then the campaign trail BS. Time for that arse to be on the other end of “you’re fired!”.

  • Matt Franklin

    Who cares.

    Stone hasn’t made a good movie since Any Given Sunday, and that was almost 20 years ago. He’s a true useful idiot in the classic sense of the term…he voted for Moscow Jill Stein, so of course Putin was favorably inclined to him in the first place.
