DAVID EDELSTEIN: “With Alexander (Warner Bros.), Oliver Stone has done what I never thought possible: He has made me feel pity for him.”
UPDATE: Donald Sensing offers another negative report:
Nephew said the movie was “incredibly bad.” How bad? This bad:
With about 15 minutes left to go, the projection system broke. The screen went blank and the sound quit. After a few seconds, when the audience realized that it wasn’t just a sudden gap between reels or the like, they clapped and cheered.
I felt that way about Sorcerer.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Lots more bad reviews here.
