Let’s not kid ourselves here, all ye art students, film-school nerds, and other self-loathing “cinema l’arte” snobs: had this exact same movie been released under the banner “directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini” you would have loved it – sorry: CLAIMED to have loved it – and praised it to high heaven, espousing its virtues in long essays, justifying its extreme sex and violence through some b.s. semantic pseudo-intellectual movie-critic-jargon mumbo-jumbo.Go on, admit it. No-one will laugh. We promise.This movie has been unanimously dismissed as exploitative trash and of no cinematic value by “notable” movie critics.After having seen the full two-and-a-half hour version: a) I can certainly see why THEY would choose to view it that way b) I totally disagree The fact that “Caligula” was financed by Penthouse (gasp!) and directed by Tinto Brass (oh no!) is what this is all about.An excellent cast includes McDowell (an ideal choice for Caligula – or any devious lunatic, for that matter) and Mirren (at the height of her enormous sex-appeal). There is terrific music from Khachaturian, an interesting story, some suspense, etc. A strong stomach is needed to watch this gore-fest, though.A corny, historically inaccurate, fairy-tale-like piece of crap like “Gandhi” gets world-wide recognition, while a brutally realistic film about another historical figure gets the finger. Go figure.
