    Un pur joyau cinématographique ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. rllr's rating of the film Alexander the Great

    The poetic power of O Megalexandros is mesmerizing, but its meaning lost if you don't have a masters degree in ancient Macedonian history. My rating is a mix of my intellectual background (or lack thereof) and Angelopoulos' pretensiousness? Something like that.

  3. Kendrick L. W.'s rating of the film Alexander the Great

    good excuse to not leave your flat all day

  4. Jason's rating of the film Alexander the Great

    A real triumph of mise-en-scène. It's stunning. Much of the story sort of dissolves into the background, as the visual and auditory elements have a tendency to hypnotize (this is not a liability). The power of metaphor is pushed right to the limits of good taste, but the tightrope act is ultimately pulled off w/ aplomb. Much of Amos Gitai's subsequent late-80s work suddenly seems like it has been sorta cribbed.

  5. Stevie's rating of the film Alexander the Great

    Slightly tedious at times but still a fantastic achievement.

  6. joey Noodles's rating of the film Alexander the Great

    A very very beautiful and well directed film with a really driving plot. However, the political undertone (or should I say overtone) was VERY heavy handed, especially towards the end. At the end of the day, a nearly great film and I really liked it. Deserves a rewatch.
