SHARE STONE SAYS SIMPSON CASE SIMILAR TO HIS NEW MOVIE

For a moment, Oliver Stone wasn't sure if he was watching the TV news or his own newest movie.

There was O.J. Simpson in a white Bronco leading a phalanx of police cars down the freeway - on live TV. It was real life, and it was eerily like Stone's next movie, "Natural Born Killers," about America's romance with violence and death."The killers have been so idealized and so glorified by the media that the media become worse than the killers," he says in the Aug. 8 issue of The New Yorker.

"The world is violent, and we're swamped in it in this century," Stone says. "I mirror that - I'm a distorting mirror, like in the circus."
