oliver stone lost it several years ago. he still has an eye for good visuals, but he’s basically a shadow of the director he once was. the storytelling, the characters, the story itself…they’re all lacking. the storytelling is sloppy and lazy. the characters are picked out of a book of stereotypes. and the story is only interesting in the most basic way – you are curious to see how things turn out.
all i really got out of it is that stone thinks pot should be legal so the cartels aren’t so powerful. i guess he doesn’t have anything to say anymore. he used to tackle things like the media, jfk conspiracies, the cost of war, etc. now he’s tackling threesomes and medicinal marijuana.Watched in theater
