Comment On Oliver Stone Panders, But 'savages' Doesn't Pan Out

Oliver Stone panders, but 'Savages' doesn't pan out

With "Savages," director Oliver Stone sets aside the highfalutin' airs of his last few pictures ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "W," "World Trade Center") and cuts loose with his idea of a fun summer movie - a lurid, fast-paced thriller about two California pot farmers whose mutual girlfriend is kidnapped by a rival Mexican cartel. This is the Stone of "Natural Born Killers" and "U Turn" and "Any Given Sunday," a director whose flair for absurdist excess and merciless satire can turn off viewers of milder sensibilities.
