If you hadn't already gathered, Oliver Stone is a stubborn man. This can be a good and not-so-good thing. Confirming what we reported on over a year ago, Oliver Stone discussed his fourth to-be-released cut of "Alexander" at this year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (along with some of his other work and advice on writing and editing). As you might remember, the original movie was a critical and commercial flop, with possibly the most positive review coming from Richard Roeper, who wrote, "It's just a wild, glorious, wacky mess that I found really entertaining."

When Oliver Stone dropped "Alexander" amid much fanfare in the fall of 2004, it was a critical and commercial flop. The picture earned a tepid $34 million domestically (it cost $150 million), was savaged in the reviews, and wound up earning six Razzie nominations. Overseas, it fared a bit better, and it seemed to find an audience on home video, and Warner Bros. gave Stone permission to tinker. And Lord, did he ever tinker.
