Oliver Stone mentioned a site (it could only be this one) where people
comment on the film in his interview with L.A. Weekly. I guess he does
actually read the board. I wish he'd post something, officially!

With Alexander, there’s a fan site where there are people who have seen it 50 times. They go to the sites in Macedon. They love the romanticism of it.
Sounds like this one..... Wink
The interview is here
it also confirms ....
We spoke at his West L.A. editing suite, where he is currently preparing a three-hour, 45-minute DVD-only “road show” version of Alexander, complete with intermission. ...... Very Happy Very Happy
The main discussion about Alexander is about 2/3 way down...but read the rest of the interview too..... Wink
regards
Cynisca

Thanks for the information, guys. It sure sounds like he is taking about this site.

I do know that he does check various sites on Alexander and tries to keep up to date with things related to the film.

Well, thats a feather in our cap, for this board.

Oh, I'm so glad I came over here and found this. Isn't it fantastic? I'm so glad that Oliver knows there is a group of us who do believe he did a great service by making this film.

YEAH!!! That's us! He's doing it for us.

THANK YOU OLIVER!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I feel so disappointed that I couldn't study Oliver Stone and Alexander for my film course. Maybe one day, but obviously my life was meant to go in a different direction and my perfect daughter was meant to be born Very Happy

Has Joanna read that interview already? She's the one who watched it 50 times (though we are right behind her Laughing ), and we've just visited the sites in Macedon. Oh, she'll go crazy when she sees it. Laughing

I think that Yanna,s wonderful account of the pilgrimage to Pella etc. ought to be sent to Oliver because firstly he refers directly to it in the interview and secondly I think he,d love to read it.It,s so full of enthusiasm and passion for Alexander that he,d immediately understand and appreciate seeing it all written down .After all,without the movie this forum wouldn,t exist,Alexandrians wouldn,t have met and the trip wouldn,t have happened.
So how about it you two,is Oliver going to get a signed copy of your expedition?
I,m going to cross post this message onto the Our Trip To Pella thread because I want to make sure our author sees it.

Oh, my God, I've just seen it! I got crazy!!!


YES, YES! I knew it! I knew that Oliver Stone reads our forum.

But, I'm afraid when he says:" there are people who have seen the movie 50 times", he doesn't mean me. I have seen it much, much, much more times than fifty Rolling Eyes ( yes, I know, it's a little embarassing)

I can't help watching it again and again. I love it!

Im very happy that Oliver reads the forum. I use to post few times but i like to read often what people writes.
Mr.Oliver, please, i thing that there are two things that most people wants, but i dont know how much depends on you: more minutes of film and all the music of vangelis (im talking about the music that sounds in the film).
Thanx
