It’s only one paragraph, but it’s a great review that makes me want to see the movie.
Oliver Stone’s Alexander, which opens today, isn’t just bad. It’s Springtime for Hitler bad. I haven’t guffawed this hard since I saw Airplane for the first time 24 years ago. This is one of the colossal catastrophes of all time.
The rest of the review might contain spoilers, if you’re keen on that. But it’s worth it for the myrth with which Podheretz rips into the movie.
