The true story behind Oliver Stone's PLATOON is the focus of this episode of The Real Story. Not only do we get interviews with Stone but there's also new interviews with William Dafoe as well as men who Stone based characters on.
There are quite a few documentaries out there about the production of this movie and Stone's own Vietnam experience is well-documented. With that said, there's a lot of interesting stuff here including some of the real events that still haunt Stone to this day and how certain aspects of the film became quite controversial. The documentary is at its best whenever we're hearing from real people who were on the ground for some of the film's most famous moments.
