THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Cecil B. DeMille, 1956)

**½
USA
"Oh, Moses, Moses, you stubborn, splendid, adorable fool!" This exclamation (by a blitzed Anne Baxter) sums up not only Charlton Heston, his NRA self-righteousness and Zapp Brannigan cadences, but also the visionary mind behind this ultra-kitschy nearly-four-hour pomposity. It's probably the most hilarious of all biblical epics - and that's saying something.
