Caligula, on the other hand, is famous for being the most expensive pornography film ever created.
I'm not going to bother summarizing plot, as there really isn't any to speak of. Obstinately, it's a historical epic about Emperor Caligula, the ruler that was responsible for such excellent history-class tibits as naming his horse a Senator and marching the Roman Garrison into the ocean because he'd declared war on Neptune, drowning them by the thousands. And you thought our presidents were bad! The movie, from a script by Gore Vidal (that he attempted to disown), details Caligula's personal insanity, including his incestuous relationships with his sister and the forces that plot against him, both real and imaginary.
Say what you will about the film, it is still a $15 million porno flick, with better actors than usual. If you're going to take the plunge to buy it, then get the blue-packaged Unrated version. Not only does it have the extra hardcore, but it is the only one with 5.1 sound and the interview segment with Gore Vidal himself.Read more ›
Directed by the Italian director - screen named Tinto Brass, the film takes you on a journey through the life of a very sick man. The film has quite a cast starting off with Malcolm McDowell in the lead role. In this production you can find the masterful talents of Peter O'Toole, Helen Mirren and John Geilgood.
The production value is very high and the costumes and set design are extraordinaire. TO think a man like this existed is sick. The film is not for the week stomach.
I liked this film for the performances and the production design overall, but the story is amazing and the details very clear. This is one you might want to rent before you buy. I bought it because I love the film moiré. (8-27-02)
It is important to watch the "Making of Caligula" feature with the DVD, as it explains everything that went into making the film. In many ways, this short film is more interesting than the movie itself. It's kind of sad, really, to see how Gore Vidal thought the movie would change the history of cinema and how much research and effort and money went into creating a Rome that ultimately looks like a porno movie but acts like a morality epic. If anything, it's evidence of the efforts in the 1970's to bring porn into mainstream cinema, of the time right before AIDS was discovered. It belongs on a shelf next to "Deep Throat."
Caligula is a reasonably good movie about how excess brings the death of morality. But so many other movies have been made which better explore this theme in equally provocative ways. ...
