Okay, I was so pissed about this a couple days ago.
Why did Oliver Stone edit Hephaistion's death scene to leave out these two lines --
(Hephaistion) "And I Patroclus?"
(Alexander) "It is our destiny." (to die together)
First of all, he set up the whole Achilles/Patroclus thing early in the movie. At the death scene, the allusion comes full circle. I realize he tried not to duplicate *anything* sexual in the remix (sorry, pop music rears its head). But, please.
And why take out the destiny remark? I just got through with a destiny challenge at our Alexander list, and the word destiny is very important to the whole story. Why, why, why? This didn't save any time or add to the flow of the scene at all. It just BUGS.
- I feel:bitchy
- I hear:Can't think of the name.
