A gorgeous looking historical epic and a passion project by Oliver Stone, who couldn't make up his mind how to edit it (is there a total of 4 different versions now?). What is problematic is that even if the film is long Stone wants to tell everything about Alexander and that makes every scene rushed as it jumps from time period and location, but as said in the film ""Some men's failure towers over others successes".
Aferrado a su amor incondicional por descubrir nuevas tierras y sobretodo, a una ruta en cuyo discurso tuvo como maestro a Aristóteles, quien le dijo que un hombre con mucho valor podría conquistar la India y dar vuelta por el Nilo hasta llegar a Macedonia de regreso por Babilonia. Sin duda, el más grande Alejandro de todos los tiempos.
Revisited is the version I watched and that version doesn't warrant the hate i've seen this film receive. I've read quite a lot on Megas Alexandros and the Diadochai and i'd say Stone summed up the tensions, the politicking and everything just right. Also the Revisited is structured in a completely non linear fashion and changes eras at the perfect moment.
I feel this film runs into the same issue as Michael Mann's "Ali": the subject is treated with incredible style, with lush and baroque production and very dynamic direction. However, the story of the subject as depicted is terribly jumbled, and even though it is entertaining and interesting to see how Stone identifies with his idea of Alexander the Great, the film itself is limited in the tale it tells.
