  • There's an enormous amount of perverse pleasure to be had here for those who get off on the annihilation of nuance. show more

  • Ambitious but very tedious and talkatively hackneyed, redeemed just a smidge by the money shots of a swarm of extras on horseback sweeping across the sands. show more

  • There's undoubtedly a good film to be made out of the scramble for oil in the Arabian desert in the 1920s – but this, for all its herculean efforts, is not it. show more
