3.0 out of 5 stars Umm... OK. Sept. 4 2001
Some epics are famous for their content. Braveheart, for instance, revitalized interest in William Wallace and might be credited with drumming up support for the Scottish National Party and the new Scottish Parliament. Others are famous for their quirks; Spartacus director Stanley Kubrick employed the "Hollywood Ten" blacklist, a group of people accused of communist activities by the McCarthy witchunt. Still others, like Lawrence of Arabia, are so unique in their locations, subject matter, and cinematographic pioneering that they top the list of influences of every major movie director - and a lot of the minor directors, too.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, Rivoting and Dynamic! Aug. 28 2002
CALIGULA is an adult film with adult subjects. This is NOT for everyone to see - especially children and even adults who may be offended by this REAL historical persons existence. This movie is Malcolm McDowell. He shines in this feature from beginning to bloody end. The film came out in 1979 to very mixed reviews. The original release was later cut to achieve a strong "R" and most of the sequences that were cut were shelved and now released in their entirety. It was originally an "X" - for graphic violence and free sex - not pornography.
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)

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many cooks... Sept. 27 2009
Once you see the special features of this movie and see what a mess it was to produce, you can understand why it sometimes seems like a mess when watching it. Given that this is based on something that happened two thousand years ago and little is known about Caligula, it is hard to determine how accurate the movie really is. But if the intent was to show the insane side of Caligula and the decadent side of Rome then this film has certainly captured that - although sometimes in a manner that is too graphic for my taste. The Blu-ray version of this movie is an improvement over the DVD version (and disc 2 is actually a DVD, not Blu-ray). However even so, this is the worst video quality I have seen on a Blu-ray to date.

1.0 out of 5 stars Monumental Filmaking Failure July 5 2007
Caligula is an utter mess of a film if only for the sole purpose that the possibilities for the concept itself were pretty good ones. Gaius Caligula Caesar's rise to power and ultimate early fall and assassination is a story worth telling a million times over, especially in the daring form of an X-rated film. It is a direct warning to the social ills of power in the wrong hands and cultural excess. There seemed to be a superstar lineup for this unique idea. Peter O'Toole, Helen Mirren and John Guilguild are three great actors. The film is directed by Italy's racy Tinto Brass and produced by the editor of Penthouse Magazine who brought a bunch of his girls to `co-star' when things got too hot for the real actors. It co-stars an exhibitionist model Theresa Ann Savoy and the lead is played by the insane and undeniable presence of Malcolm McDowell. So what the hell happened? Gore Vidal wrote an awful screenplay and Brass seemed to have problems with the writer wanting all of the credit for the film. This conflict itself along with all the other ego issues probably contributed to its failure. I also think it is entirely possible that all of the focus, costs and discipline were replaced with piles and piles of uncut cocaine. Seriously though, the set must've been one enormous party and as we see it was at times a real-life orgy and acting became secondary. The flaws are almost wholly directorial in nature. I feel for the cast because the guys behind the scenes had no idea what to do so why bother delivering a decent performance?

Anyway, the rumors of Caligula's insanity and the stories that exhibit this were tossed into the picture in spurts and the film follows, and perhaps even sets the standard for, many of the varied cliches applied in shocking the hell out of its audience.

No historical or theater value.
