Abandoning fictional ancient history for real ancient history (sort of), Andrew and Dave take a look at director Oliver Stone’s 2004 misfire ALEXANDER, which looks at the life of Alexander the Great. More specifically, the duo look at ALEXANDER: THE FINAL CUT, Stone’s three-hour plus re-edit of the film, which is not, despite the subtitle, the final cut of the film. Will the pair be able to survive the film’s bloated running time? How problematic are the sexual and racial politics of the film? What the heck was Stone thinking while he made this film, anyway? Tune in and find out!
Next Episode: Yeah, I wouldn’t trust HUAC with mental health issues either.
Music by Andrew, Editing by Dave.
