Il ladro di Bagdad

josé neves's rating of the film The Thief of Baghdad

35mm, french version, color degradation. Despite the degradation, cinematography by the great Tonino Delli Colli is the best of the film which in certain scenes composes chromes, like the old view masters. The least interesting of the Baghdad thieves films i know, is exhilarating when it comes to fantastic, but it's mostly kitschy and unwieldy to function as a dynamic movie. Steve Reeves is a big loaf in scope.
