Critic Reviews for Cleopatra
The film Cleopatra is another proof that the kinema may accomplish some of the effects of authentic dramatic art if it will only select its subjects judiciously.April 9, 2021 | Full Review…
Scenery and costumes no more constitute a dramatic masterpiece in the movies than they do in the theater. There must be an architecture in the plot, a scientific employment of the stresses and strains of motives.
[Cleopatra presents] half a dozen of the most artistically beautiful scenes that have ever been photographed.
The costumes are wonderful and are said to have cost a king's ransom. Theda Bara is splendid in the title role.
The battle scene was so well handled as to merit special praise. Even the Sphinx looked on with wondering eyes.
Especially effective are the desert scenes... There are furious races across the desert sands, by way of contrast a furious sea battle, and the struggle raging in the city of Alexandria between the armies of Cleopatra and of Octavius Caesar.
