When it was announced that Oliver Stone was going to direct "World Trade Center" - Hollywood's first major film about the September 11 terrorist attacks - people were skeptical, to say the least. Forget about Stone's talents as a filmmaker; it's the man's politics that took center stage in the debate over whether he was the best candidate to explore such uncharted territory.

After all, here's a guy whose nutty conspiracy theories make Michael Moore look like Bill Frist, and one of his most recent films was a documentary espousing the virtues of Fidel Castro. Is that really someone who deserves creative control over a movie that is sure to reopen fresh wounds regarding an extremely delicate subject matter? As much as I admire Stone's work, even I had my doubts.
