With Mark Lawson.

Oliver Stone, director of Wall St, Nixon, JFK and Natural Born Killers, discusses his latest film Savages, which focuses on a pair of young men in California who run a lucrative and peaceful business growing marijuana. But trouble and violence loom when they come up against an aggressive and powerful Mexican drugs cartel who demand their share.
