Before Rome. Before Gladiator. The most controversial film of all time as you've never experienced it before! Combining lavish spectacle and top award-winning stars, this landmark production was shrouded in secrecy since its first day of filming. Now, this unprecedented special edition presents a bolder and more revealing Caligula than ever before, with a beautiful new high-definition transfer from recently uncovered negative elements and hours of never-before-seen bonus material! From the moment he ascends to the throne as Emperor, Caligula enforces a reign like no other as power and corruption transform him into a deranged beast whose deeds still live on as some of the most depraved in history.

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)
