Ha ha ha! Maybe I will see it in the theater after all. I was planning to, but then my boyfriend pointed out that it has a 60% rating at Rotten Tomatoes, which is generally pretty reliable. But maybe that's to be expected from a political film.

I'll see this. Not so much b/c it's a Stone film, but b/c of the premise.

Screenplay good beginning to end?

Will catch this today. thx.
Did you guys watch it because of the subject matter or because it's an Oliver Stone film.
I'd guess you went by the director, right? You are also one of the very few who owns Alexander in a German release format, so....

Sra:
I tend to favor Oliver Stone generally, hence the primary interest in the film.
I rarely look at Rotten Tomatoes ratings. At the risk of sounding too condescending, I noticed a while back that RT doesn't seem to know much about cinematic context. Per me, at least.
Why is W. worth a look?
Other than obvious context answer, I'd say it's Oliver Stone in a new and different light. And since I enjoy him directorially, I'd give it a thumb up.
