Caligula (Film) Navigation menu VideoCaligula (1979) Trailer
But Fellini it ain't First of all it is not as entertaining. Far too much screen time is devoted to bug-eyed, rubber-faced McDowell in the titular role.
His performance is far too fey and campy to be convincing. The portrayals by Jay Robinson in "The Robe" and David Cain-Haughton in "Emperor Caligula" are far more persuasive and believable, with the latter being the most nuanced.
Relief could have been judiciously provided by developing the surrounding characters more fully. As it is, they are little more than cyphers.
One example is the role of Macro, played by Guido Mannari who has tremendous screen presence in an important role, but is mostly left in the background.
The only positive features to credit are the adroit use of some Prokofiev and Stravinsky themes in the music score and the inclusion of some of the distasteful but nevertheless accurate actions of the despot.
These two factors are far less than what is needed to relieve the prevailing tedium, however. All Titles TV Episodes Celebs Companies Keywords Advanced Search.

Details the graphic and shocking but undeniably tragic story of Rome's most infamous Caesar, Gaius Germanicus Caligula. John Gielgud and Helen Mirren were indifferent to Brass; they ultimately trusted his direction and focused on their own performances.
During the film's production, McDowell took members of the production to dinner at an expensive restaurant to celebrate England's win in a football match against the Italian team.
He left the choreographer to pay for the meal, saying he had forgotten to bring enough money. McDowell offered her a signet ring, a prop from the film.
She refused because it belonged to the production company. Brass decided not to focus much on Danilo Donati's elaborate sets, and intentionally kept the Penthouse Pets in the background during sex scenes.
He focused instead on women whom Guccione considered to be unattractive. Filming concluded on 24 December His rough-cut was disassembled afterwards and the film was edited by several editors, changing its tone and structure significantly by removing and re-arranging many scenes, using different takes, a slower editing style and music other than Brass intended.
A few weeks after filming had concluded, Guccione and Giancarlo Lui returned to Rome with several Penthouse Pets.
Guccione and Lui "hired a skeleton crew, snuck back into the studios at night, raided the prop room"  and shot hardcore sex scenes to edit into the film.
Even though there were a number of editors on the film, their names were not credited. Instead, the credit "Editing by the Production" is given during the opening credits.
Peter O'Toole was reluctant to re-record his English dialogue when it was needed. He stayed away from the film's producers until he finally agreed to re-record his dialogue in a Canadian recording studio.
The film was scored by Bruno Nicolai under the name Paul Clemente. In the United States, Guccione refused to submit Caligula to the MPAA because he did not want the film to receive a rating—even X —which he considered to be "demeaning".
Rather than leasing prints to exhibitors, the distributor rented theaters that specialized in foreign and art films for the purpose of screening Caligula exclusively  in order to keep the film out of theaters that showed pornographic films.
The script was adapted into a novelization written by William Johnston under the pseudonym William Howard. In , when Guccione tried to import the film's footage into the U.
Federal officials did not declare the film to be obscene. In Boston , authorities seized the film. Atlanta prosecutors threatened legal action if the film was to be screened in the city, but experts testified in court on behalf of the film, and Atlanta, too, declared that the film was not obscene.
The film was banned in Australia, where it continues to be banned in its uncut form as of [update]. In , Anneka Di Lorenzo, who played Messalina, sued Guccione, claiming sexual harassment.
On appeal, court vacated the award, ruling that punitive damages were not allowed by the law governing the case. Caligula received generally negative reviews.
Ebert wrote, "In the two hours of this film that I saw, there were no scenes of joy, natural pleasure, or good sensual cheer. There was, instead, a nauseating excursion into base and sad fantasies.
Caligula continued to garner negative reception long after its release. The site's critical consensus reads, "Endlessly perverse and indulgent, Caligula throws in hardcore sex every time the plot threatens to get interesting.
Writers for The Hamilton Spectator and St. Louis Post-Dispatch said Caligula was one of the worst films they'd seen. Club , Keith Phipps said, "As a one-of-a-kind marriage of the historical epic and the porn film Caligula deserves a look.
But it might be better to let Guccione's savagely unpleasant folly fade into the century that spawned it". Caligula is considered to be a " cult classic ".
The fake trailer was screened worldwide, including New York City's Whitney Museum of American Art 's Whitney Biennial. Film critic and internet personality Brad Jones aka The Cinema Snob often considers Caligula to be his most favorite film, so much so that, for his Snob set, he usually has a poster of Caligula to the right of his chair.
In , Caligula was released on DVD and Blu-ray in an "Imperial Edition",  which featured the unrated theatrical release version and a new version featuring alternative sequencing from the original theatrical release and without the explicit sexual content shot by Guccione, marking the first attempt to reconstruct the film into a version closer to Brass' intentions.
This edition also includes audio commentaries featuring Malcolm McDowell and Helen Mirren, and interviews with the cast and crew. In February , Penthouse announced that a new cut of the film was being edited by Alexander Tuschinski.
In July , Alexander Tuschinski released his documentary Mission: Caligula on Vimeo. The film explores his relationship to Caligula , the process of reconstructing Brass's vision and Penthouse CEO Kelly Holland 's backing of the project.
