on imdb.com

"Director Oliver Stone, whose first film, Last Year in Viet Nam (1971), dealt with a soldier's doubts about the legitimacy of war, has criticized movies that portray soldiers as superheroes. The Irish Times quotes Stone as saying that anyone who blasts his ultra-violent Natural Born Killers but praises hit war films is being hypocritical. "Natural Born Killers is a satire, whereas movies like Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan contribute to an aura of patriotic inevitability and an awe of the military." Stone, who served 15 months in Vietnam and earned a Purple Heart with Oak Leaf Cluster and a Bronze Star, later wrote, produced or directed several other anti-war films, including Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July."

I wonder how Stone will treat the warrior side of Alexander - I think the evil nature of war will be a focus... looking at the shots from the trailer of alexander crying on the battlefield.
