Audience Reviews for Megalexandros, O, (Alexander the Great )
I think this is Angelopoulos's huge etude, or experiment. I am not sure if 3-hours is necessary to get to the second last and the last shot yet. It gave me the feeling that it's all about how to move camera and people and lacking something more important in cinema...
A thrilling exultation.Serene insight and captivating sequences,traditional detail whereas Antonutti's pious expiation derives from those fleshes and wounds his people suffer.Alexander,not the great rather the generous is an insurgent.Rebellions and justice "leagues",their leader a man holding a particular silence on all events.Greece as a gloomy,monarchic,terrifying location in the early 20th century shown through Angelopoulos' lens.A master's lens.
