Hmmm - not so bad:
Watched Oliver Stone's 'Alexander'
and was surprised how much I liked it, considering the rough criticism it received. It did strike me more as a very good made-for-TV movie/series than a great work of film art. ... As noted last fall
, I suspect Stone read Valerio Massimo Manfredi's classic novels
on Alexander or something similar. If you haven't read Manfredi or other Alexander tomes, I can see where a lot of people found Stone's flick confusing and slow-paced. ...
