Caesar and Cleopatra

5 years, 4 months ago at Sep 12 9:25
Caesar and Cleopatra is a strong case study of a lavish production with a sluggish and fitfully dull outcome. The main problem, which is obvious to anyone viewing the film, is that the entire spectacle causes the viewer to be removed from the characters and their societal drama. Both of these things are far more interesting than the spectacle. Why? George Bernard Shaw, the British playwright armed... read more
