POSTERS

Review:

Six actors, five recognizable faces. You have to feel bad for Aaron Johnson whose mug is hidden behind a carnival mask for not getting any visibility. That, of course, is the least of this wholly unoriginal poster's problems.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

It almost feels as if Oliver Stone started making the film and got high off his subjects' pot before deciding which drug-fueld fantasy he would follow to its conclusion. While it would be nice for Stone to return to the form he set back in the 1980's and 1990's, I'm afraid this doesn't look like it will do that.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
