Stone's newfound timidity in both style and content -- this appeared after a 10-year stretch that included the high-powered likes of Platoon, JFK and Natural Born Killers -- marked it as the beginning of the end of a remarkable run.

There's no compelling structure or viewpoint to hold the picture together.

The president's tale is convoluted as it is, and doesn't need the assistance of Stone's dizzying mix of film stocks, camera angles and jump cuts, or his non-Euclidean plot flow.
