JFK, of course. That thing's a near-masterpiece.

I also enjoy Platoon (to an extent) and Any Given Sunday.

Some others I'm more lukewarm to, others I can't stand, and there are a few I haven't seen.

Well of course it's beautifully filmed, it's Kubrick. But it was filmed on a lot in England, and you can tell. There's just no authenticity at all, and while that approach may have worked for the waking dream element of Eyes Wide Shut or The Shining, for Vietnam it doesn't. I just feel after the go-for-broke location work on Apocalypse, and the almost-verite quality of Platoon, FMJ just comes off a bit phony and too-little-too-late.

Just saw Once last night. Gorgeous music, decent acting, but it seemed a bit aimless overall. I liked it, though

I could not stand Any Given Sunday.

I liked Platoon a lot, as well as JFK. I like Midnight Express, but, that's just his screenplay, not him directing.

That's not a film that will necessary scream out to be watched again and again, but, was also a very hard film to not like.

That's a good way of putting it.

Lance, if you haven't seen Stone's Talk Radio you should definitely check it out. One of his more restrained films in terms of visuals. Fantastic script and performance by Eric Bogosian, who wrote the source play.

Who doesn't love Platoon?

Shut up! Shut up and take the pain! Take the pain!

I don't know what to say really.

Yeah. Stone was in Nam, but, obviously, he did not spend too much time around professional sports.

Here you go:

When exactly did Al Pacino become Al Pacino the caricature of a great actor instead of Al Pacino the great actor?

He's Pacino the great actor in a great movie in The Insider. He's way over the top in Scent of a Woman, though.
