Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone (JFK, Born on the Fourth of July) tackles the most important true story of the 21st century.

3 1/2 stars for a dramatic portrayal of one of modern America’s most controversial figures. Theater review. No one expects Oliver Stone to make a movie that’s not controversial. Both in terms of subject matter and his approach. And so it is here. Here he takes on one of the most divisive (aside from politicians) Americans in recent memory.
