Caligola / Tinto Brass / Italy, USA 1979 / 156 min. / 18 years / Blu-ray
“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” This Bible quote opens a highly stylized movie focusing on the reign of the Roman Emperor Caligula. Even the director’s disputes with the movie’s producer and scriptwriter could not detract from the astonishing performance by Malcolm McDowell in the title role.
