Ever since Paramount started previewing Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center" (opening today in wide release) to press and politicos, a variety of voices have come out in celebration of the film, from the extreme right to the moderate middle. Even leftwing spokeswoman Ariana Huffington (of the Huffingtonpost) went to bat for the film, calling the movie "apolitical." What complete bunk. For Alternet.org, I offer this corrective, an admittedly politicized review that hopes to set the record straight. "World Trade Center" is anything but apolitical (can anything reallly not be political, especially these days?): "Instead, Stone delivers the Bush base a jingoistic, All-American all-you-can-eat buffet on a silver platter."
