U Turn 1997

From Amazon: Oliver Stone used such words as "liberating" and "fun" to talk about U Turn's relatively quick production schedule of 42 days. Stone's ideas of film fun, however, are something older generations would call sick.

U Turn Movie Review by Valerie (12/20/2006)

One of Oliver Stone's weakest films, in terms of story and appeal. Stone has the talent to make a great movie like he has before (Platoon, JFK) but every director has a weak point in his career and it's safe to say U Turn is Oliver Stone's weak point.
