Of course. Oliver Stone pretty much says that too.
Any account of the history of the world, where many people and
things are involved in many processes at many diverse levels, will
be biased because one can only take a point of view that generates
an integrates "sense". The universe is not simple and we should
never expect that any simple narative of it is "the whole story".
Oliver Stone is an artist, not a divine teller of truths. Stop
the idolatry, please.
Who is idolazing? I'd give the show a B+ to B most of the time. It's
not perfect, but it's got a lot of things in there that I had vaguely
swimming around in my mind put into a timeline-episode context that
makes it easier to think about. For the record, I's say that Stone's
stuff is merely adequate a lot of the time. He's no Kubrick, but he
tries hard and I believe he thinks he's being honest.
