At first, I didn't feel much of a need to comment on the film, since so
many others have written and have said so many things. But I think
there are some really important points to made, and I haven't seen
anyone make them. So here I am writing.
In my opinion, almost everyone misunderstood the relationship between
Hephaistion and Alexander. In the modern world, especially in the West,
two men are either very close to each other, sleep together, and have
sex, or they keep a good comfortable distance from each other and, if
they're friendly, might punch each other on the arm. In this film, we
see a relationship that is hard for most people today to understand,
namely a passionate love relationship between two men in which sex is
not very important and possibly even absent.
Aristotle essentially explained the whole film near the beginning when
he told the young couple something like the following, as best I can
remember it, "When two men lie together in lust, it is over indulgence.
But when two men lie together in purity, they can perform wonders." Or
something like that. Given what I know of that culture, I am sure that
"in purity" means no sex, or at least very little. That's why we never
see them kiss. In the film, as in many older films, kissing is a
metaphor for sex. Even when Alexander kisses his mother, it refers to
the idea of sex. That's why Alexander kisses Bagoas, but not
Now I'm not sure if the real historical Aristotle would have made that
remark. That's not exactly what he says about homosexuality in the
Nicomachean Ethics. But the remark is plausible enough since Alexander
could easily have heard such an idea during his youth. Plato (before
Aristotle) expressed that idea, and Zeno of Citium (after Aristotle)
did too. So even if Aristotle never said this to Alexander, it is
plausible enough that the idea was in the air and that Alexander heard
it from someone or other.
Some have complained that the "homosexuality" (assuming that A's
relationship with Heph. should even be called that) was thrown in their
faces too much. But it's crucial to the plot. Stone is hypothesizing
that Hephaistion was essential for what Alexander did. Further, it's a
standard Hollywood convention to juxtapose a love story with some great
political, military, or otherwise grand event. There are tons of
examples. Titanic, Enemy at the Gates, Gone with the Wind, ... the list
could go on forever. It really is homophobic to complain about Stone
continually going back to this theme, because he has a perfectly good
artistic reason to do it.
A few more details: Alexander's hair. I think that Stone was trying to
make Alexander look like Martin Potter in Satyricon -- a nod to
Alexander's accent and soft appearance. Another nod to a great director
passed on, this time Stanley Kubrick. Farrel really looks a lot like
Ryan O'Neil in Barry Lyndon. In fact, he really looks like a Ryan
O'Neill / Martin Potter coalescence. I think it's deliberate.
The softness of Alexander's personality. In a lot of scenes it made
sense. He was gentle enough to know how to approach Bucephalus and tame
him without scaring him. He was open minded enough to adopt a lot of
Persian culture and encourage intermarriage, while the other more
"he-man" folks around him were less comfortable with the idea.
Yes, if you haven't figured it out by now, I do like the film. People's
hatred of the film is hard for me to understand.
