Oliver Stone will present the extended director's-cut versions of two of his most ambitious and accomplished films, on Sunday, March 13, 2011, at the Museum of the Moving Image. The program will include a screening of a 213-minute version of Nixon, Stone's complex, multifaceted portrait of one of the most fascinating and notorious political leaders in recent American history. Stone will then present Alexander: Revisited, a dramatically richer and more intense version of his epic film about Alexander, the Macedonian king who was one of history's greatest military and political leaders. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Stone and Moving Image Source contributor Matt Zoller Seitz, who, with Kevin B. Lee, created a four-part video essay about Stone's films—including pieces on Nixon and Alexander
