Photo of the Day

Caligula (Malcolm McDowell) arrives at the Roman Senate with his horse for Senator. 

I have to say that this photo is beautiful.

I haven't seen this film since the early 1980s. Anyway, I didn't like it back then, thought it was too sloppy but there's a reason for that as the film was hijacked from Tinto Brass and re-edited into a mess with wretched hardcore scenes. The sex/nudity didn't bother me. The violence was so over-the-top that it became silly even though some scenes were creative. I love Baroque films so I decided to buy the IMPERIAL edition with 3 DVDs and revisit it. It's probably not worth it but I watch anything with a PEPLUM theme/setting.
