Oliver Stone's Secret History of America

Oliver Stone's Secret History of America


There is a classified America we were never meant to see. From Academy Award®-winning writer/director Oliver Stone, this ten-part documentary series looks back at human events that at the time went under-reported, but that crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the 20th century. From the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War and the fall of Communism, this in-depth, surprising, and totally riveting series demands to be watched again and again. (Source: SHOWTIME)

Every American should watch this program. Those that doubt it;s authenticity are just slaves to a Political agenda. Oliver Stone pulls no punches when it comes to Historical accounts of Events in History. He takes No Side, and challenges the status quot at every turn. America is the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth, but our government is Highly Flawed, and if you don't believe that then you are living in a fantasy land. time and time again our Government has lied and outright mislead the Citizenry. From purposely giving Syphilis to Tuskeegee Army Soldiers, To the Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction of George W. Bush, to Barack Obama's insidious Drone Bomb Campaigns. The American Government flaunts it nose at our Constitution and we the people sit idly by an watch it happen. One of the reason's why American are so complacent is because we are taught in early education a Flawed and Dishonest account of American History. Oliver Stone makes Enemies and to him that is the best form of flattery ! Watch This Program and Make your children watch it too, you will learn and be better equipped to make decisions about our Government come election day. Thanks Mr. Oliver Stone keep up the Great Work.

How wonderful. Another supposed historian rewriting the history of America, trying to show America in a less than favorable light. His documentary (?) is complete with movie clips masquerading as historical footage and actors reciting supposed comments of the historical figures of the time. It jumps back and forth from one administration to another, with little continuity. All in all, a second rate conspiracy theory of why America is a villain in the world and therefore justifiably hated. Drama - yes, documentary, educational, history - no!!! Stone should stick to make-believe movies and leave history alone, unless, of course, he's run out of original ideas. Read more

Why someone would join TVRage just to critique a show is beyond my understanding.
Probably one of those people that just critique authors they don't approve of and books they've never read, in other words, a republican. That's a well known trick of the right to try to discredit other points of view. I guess it's hard for some to understand that the USA isn't always the good country we want to believe. Read more
