Joseph L. Mankiewicz United Kingdom, 1963

Gylfi's rating of the film Cleopatra

Fascinating, a larger than life production chock full of extravagant costumes and setpieces. However bad the acting, the pacing of the story or whatever other faults are to be found, the final result is still an entertaining watch. Of course the story behind the making of the film has become legendary and once you witness the madness of this giant undertaking, you will see why. Recommend the gorgeous blu-ray edition!
