"Infidel Defilers. They shall all drown in lakes of blood".

The Guardian notes that Oliver Stone is intent on making a documentary on Ahmedinejad, or as a friend insists on calling him, Ahmed Dinner Jazz.

"Ahmadinejad accepted the request earlier this year by the director to make a documentary about him. A bad move, according to one of Iran's most influential conservative newspapers, which has tried to convince him to reconsider. Keyhan, which has links to the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, pointed to Stone's 1991 movie, The Doors, to show that he is unsuited to film the Iranian president, whom the paper called "an intellectual and peacemaker".

"The Doors was in commemoration of one of America's perverted and half-mad singers; someone who urinated on the head of his fans during his concerts and enjoyed doing so," wrote the article's author, Elham Rajabpour".


I do not think that Keyhan has begun to investigate Stone's oeuvre, so as a public service, here is a list of Stone projects. I think that the Iranians have really missed a trick in not considering 'Conan the Barbarian', and I see Ahmedinejad as a shoo-in for the character of Thulsa Doom, Conan's would be nemesis, and the head of a snake cult - a quote from whom acts as my headline.

Alternatively, 'jad could be a prison chief a la 'Midnight Express', a goon a la 'Salvador', a triad leader in the fashion of 'Year of the Dragon', or Tony 'say hello to my leetle frien'' Montana in 'Scarface'. The most obvious parallel, however, would be Darius in 'Alexander'....
