    Here are the highlights from Oliver Stone's career trajectory. In 1983, he wrote a great script for "Scarface". From the mid-80's to the early 90's, he directed two great films - "Platoon" and "JFK" - and two very good films - "Wall Street" and "Born on the Fourth of July". Pretty much everything Stone has done since the year 2000 has been self-indulgent drivel.

    "Alexander" is definitely self-indulgent drivel.

    Definitely an interesting experience. I watched the Revisited Cut on DVD. Some scenes, I was enthralled. Others, I was not happy with the direction that was taken. Wish there was more emphasis on how brilliant (albeit impulsive) of a military commander Alexander was to balance out who he was as a person. Overall, I did enjoy the movie and will probably watch it again soon, but it could have been more. 8 years 1 month ago

    I actually really like this movie; I know it has gotten many mixed or bad reviews, but I think it's quite good.

    Visually it's stunning, of course. Great colours, amazing mass scenes, landscapes and buildings. The fight scenes were impressive - yes, they can get a little lengthy but all in all, they were great.

    But I was really impressed by the great actors. Everyone fit their role, but I especially loved Colin Farrell and Jared Leto. They had some great scenes together and their acting was marvellous. Great chemistry.

    In general I liked how much the film focused on the characters' inner conflicts, their dreams and fears, on bisexuality and different kinds of love between men.

    Great achievement by all the actors.
