Director Oliver Stone despondent about the future of cinema

Director Oliver Stone doesn’t sound very cheerful about the future of cinema. Speaking at the International Consumer Electronics Show, the director muses the sanctity of the cinematic medium might be lost to current and future generations.

Stone says, "Watching my children and friends look at a computer screen with a movie — with the lights on, with interruptions, trying to multitask — is very depressing to people like me," Stone said at a filmmaker panel discussion on the Las Vegas Convention Center floor. "Now, my daughter had [a movie on] a phone the other day. I found it, literally, sad. I feel like we are the last of the Mohicans, in a way."

Stone’s most recent movie “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” has just been recently released on DVD.
