DVD REVIEWS: Alexander: Director’s Cut
Movie ••½ Picture/Sound •••• Extras ••
At least the action is perfectly staged and shot, and it practically jumps off the screen in the two-disc set's sharp and richly textured picture. The boisterous and dynamic 5.1-channel soundtrack - perfect for disturbing the neighbors - gives a visceral urgency to the battles. In his director's commentary, Oliver Stone is eloquent and exhaustive. Other extras include a brief interview with composer Vangelis and a tedious 90-minute documentary. [R] English, Dolby Digital 5.1; letterboxed (2.35:1) and anamorphic widescreen; one single- and one dual-layer disc.
