Oliver Stone’s American ‘History’ docu-series should be labeled comedy

Narrating over old newsreel footage and archival photos, the sonorous Stone recites a detail-packed leftist history, disputing notions of American exceptionalism.

Written by Stone and American University professor Peter Kuznick, “Untold” bloats with details from the duo's 700-plus- page companion tome. It's like watching an audio book.

The four hour-long episodes available for review span World War II through the early years of the Cold War.

Recounting the minutiae of wartime pacts, political maneuvering and battlefield victories, Stone challenges, for example, the claim that “Americans won World War II.”

    Oliver Stone is an idiot. But to try and see all sides, if instead of saying that Russia won WWII, he said that Austria won WWII, I’ll go along. After all, Hitler was Austrian and he killed the leader of the Axis Powers.
