    ★★★★

    I believe it fair to say that this is no Cleopatra, and I do mean that in the best way.

    In reference to that comparison, where Cleo relied heavily on big budget set pieces, that didn't pay off most of the time, Lawrence relies on the beauty of the desert, the balance of blocking, and the wondrous framing of the scenes. A technical marvel with its visuals, score, editing, and sound - I didn't know I could be so moved…

    That being said it's fun as hell (for the most part) and slaps pretty hard at times. Just give it a watch if you like Spongebob; it's solid.

    (Also Squidward a legs alone shoulda won this thing the Tony for costumes because DAMN. Eat your heart out My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center - period costumes should not win as often as they tend to do.)
