Stone’s film, excerpts of which were read by some journalists, has already caused criticism of the Director by a number of media in the United States. The author accused the Pro-Russian positions and to be sympathetic to the Russian President. Previously, stone has been accused of anti-Americanism in a film about the conflict in Ukraine, as well as in interviews with leaders of Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.
The stone also asked the opinion about an interview last week took the President’s television journalist, NBC Megyn Kelly.
“I think she was attractive and she was asking the tough questions, but she couldn’t argue with him (Putin — ed.) and confront him, because she did not know many things,” said stone, noting that unlike her, the Russian President “knew what they said.”
He called the style of her interview, “like a machine gun”, meaning a large number of questions.
“I’m not a journalist. I’m making a movie, and I had another approach,” stone said.
Interview, Putin was shown on NBC on Sunday evening “Prime time”. However, in the air you got only 10 minutes of conversation, that was seriously mounted. Almost all the questions of the journalist concerned the so-called “RF interference” in the elections in the United States. Putin once again denied such accusations, calling them unsubstantiated.
