"World Trade Center" directed by Oliver Stone [review]
MetadataShow full item record
Oliver Stone’s most recent film before this one was the wannabe-epic and Colin Farrell vehicle Alexander. That film, which played worldwide to choruses of raucous laughter, has gone down in recent history as one of the most costly and ill-advised flops of the new millennium. It is fascinating, then, to see Stone follow that disastrous misfire up with an altogether different beast: an observant and powerfully-made film about one of our generation’s defining real-life tragedies, the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.
