"Talk Radio"

Where this movie disappeared to is beyond us. Frankly, I'd never even heard of it prior to Mark suggesting it as a possible option. At the height of his prime, Oliver Stone set out to direct this film - a film based on a PLAY, by the way - and generally knocked it out of the park, despite the movie vanishing from at least my own little world view. All this considered, "Talk Radio" is a pretty great watch and a valid political piece that still holds true today (ESPECIALLY NOW). Inspired by (SPOILER, but based on real life facts?) the real life murder of a Denver, Colorado talk radio host - a Jewish man whose mouth and words got him in trouble with the far-right white supremacy group that ultimately killed him in the parking lot outside of his radio station. This movie deserves some attention.

Pretty sure I've seen this but I picked up a copy of the DVD to give it another go.
