Audio Commentary:Oliver Stone and historian Robin Lane Fox.
Documentaries:Resurrecting Alexander, explores the filming of Alexander. Perfect is the Enemy of God, provides an in depth look at the details that go into the filming of an epic.
Featurette:Soundtrack featurette: Vangelis Scores Alexander .
Other extra features are the same as on the director's cut. Three documentaries (80 minutes total) collect behind-the-scenes footage, interviews (mostly with the crew), and some effects notes. They're rather indistinguishable from each other and might have been edited into a shorter, tighter single unit. There's also a four-minute featurette of composer Vangelis at his keyboard discussing his craft. --David Horiuchi
Much of the chronology in the film is accurate (though Stone's flashbacks will confuse those with limited knowledge of Alexander's life).
So Oliver Stone decides to focus on his relationship with males rather than showing us WHY Alexander is the greatest military commander of all time.
Something else I found a bit distracting is that you have to get up in the middle of the movie just to change discs to see the entire film.

|Why do people hate this movie so much?||
Read "Persian Boy" book, and this movie will be so much more interesting. I saw it. Yeah, it is kinda long, and gets people tired. If you please, one should watch it in two seatings, but the scenery and the way plot flows is grand. I love it!

|Question about this version.||
the version you saw in theater WAS the original DVD release.
The other version initially released on DVD under the name "director's cut" was indeed shorter than the theatrical version, but Oliver Stone wanted to make the pace tighter and more consistent.

Some people like the film. Yes, people who are not idiots like the film. It's possible for slow moving movies, flawed movies and misunderstood movies to actually be good. Alexander is one example. It's wasn't the homophobia of America that made this film flop as much as the cynical a.d.d. riddled... Read More
