Early word on Alexander ain't too good ... Little Man sleeping in the Chronicle, only two stars from Roger Ebert, Scott Tobias calls it "an excruciating disaster for the ages," consensus scores at Metacritic currently stand at 40 on a scale of 100.
Why would anyone be surprised? Oliver Stone makes crappy movies. He's the new Stanley Kubrick, overrated by experts and commonfolk alike. He's directed 21 movies, I've seen six and liked one, Talk Radio which was Eric Bogosian's movie, anyway. JFK, Nixon, Natural Born Killers ... they all suck. Why does this guy get so much attention?
