Critic Reviews for Cleopatra's Second Husband

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (6)

It's a bitter pill to swallow, featuring a quartet of unsympathetic characters and an unrelenting air of misanthropy.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

One of those potentially interesting movies that takes its sweet time getting to the point -- by which time many audience members will likely have bailed out or dozed off.

January 1, 2000

The characters are so dislikable that not much seems to be at stake.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A diabolically clever psychological suspense movie.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Unlike its Hollywood kin ... this scene from the class gurgle has the courage of its convictions -- which are misanthropic enough to make Neil LaBute wince.

For anyone who doesn't mind being exposed to something a little dark and unsettling, Cleopatra's Second Husband offers 90 minutes of intriguing cinema.
