Audience Reviews for Augustus
An excellent retelling of the life of Augustus, if a bit on an encomium . . . with Peter O'Toole as the emperor himself. Owned on DVD.
Writing and most of the acting is embarrassingly bad. It was painful for me to watch, despite my great interest in the subject. HBO's "Rome", on the other hand is outstanding.
The political machinations and intrigues rampant during Roman times continue to fascinate me. With the exception of Charlotte Rampling, the film itself is mediocre. This depiction cries for further exploration of this fascinating time period.
