Angry Robot


Whoa. This is definitely worth checking out, if only to marvel at how a film like it got made – oh for the days of mainstream art porn, when Sir John Gielgud and a cumshot could be in the same film! (not his, thank god). McDowell-as-Caligula’s fancy thumbs up dance is a wonder to behold. As scandalous as it all seems, it’s mostly true, if we can trust the ancients’ testimony. Gore Vidal did a good job with the script, although watching a crazy guy fuck and/or stab people inevitably becomes tiresome past the two hour mark.

    You neglect to include the opinions of d/shlong in your review.

  2. D says:

    If d/shlong could write, I’d be in the circus right now. As for the porno content, it might be appealing if you find maschocism and/or togas erotic.

    The thumbs up dance is Fanfukintastic!

  4. Is this the one where some big machine chops off people’s heads after they get stuck in shit and some guy sticks a rose is some other guy’s arse? Admitedly, I was caned when I saw the film (at least I think it was Caligula) but I don’t think I made those bits up. . .

    Yes, that’s the one. I’m a bit hazy on the ass-rose action but there were plenty of other anal violations, so odds are that’s the one.
