Critic Review - Rolling Stone

This is one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever,' right along with Stanley [Kubrick].

What I wanna know is... when and where did Peter Travers say this about the film and Stone? That quote is not in his original review. Has the film since grown on him?

RT staff, can you provide some context to this quote? For all I know right now (and after googling), it's completely made up.

Here's what happened: somehow, Rotten Tomatoes messed up. They took this quote not from Travers's (largely critical) review, but from a user comment posted beneath it. Not only is this quote unrepresentative of his review, it makes it look like he adored the film when he didn't even like it.

If it's one of his all time favorites, why is it only 3?
