Tinto Brass is always the best. When he make a movie, he's make always the best kind of movies. Props also to Mr. Bob Guccione to bring out the pornography and also to Gore Vidal for the screenplay.
A rather bizarre and non-erotic historical porn that ultimately fails to tell an actual story
So despicably exploiting the biography of the eponymous disputatious Roman emperor that even its original director and screenwriter disavow this Penthouse-produced pornography.
Vile, dreary nihilism that no combination of explicit sex, gory special effects, polished acting, or sheer audacity can elevate beyond sheer, simple, shameful trash. While I can admire the effort to create an erotic epic that might do for cinema what Joyce's ULYSSES did for censorship and literature, there just is not much more here to admire than the film's shocking existence--and it certainly does shock, even if it never even remotely entertains. Who knew that necrophilic incest would be so boring?
A controversial masterpiece, the best peplum ever, at last a porno film you can watch without justifying yourself staring the best actor ever. The long version only. Do yourself a treat.. Watch and love it and rate it fair. It's a must see.
i wouldn't judge this film by its eroticism only. excellent cast and performance. rare gem which is hard to ever outshine...
Well, the mission was sound, the vision good, but the execution iffy. Not bad acting, and actually not a bad movie, but if you are married with children you have to give it 2 stars. If you are a single man, it gets 6 stars, and if you are just married, ask your mate.
A film that is overlooked and judged for being uncompromising. The irony is that if it wasn't, it would betray its main character. The film has great sets and costumes, and a frighteningly vile performance from McDowell.
A BAD EROTIC FILIM BASED ON A BAD CREEP,,,,,,,,,,,,,
I saw it on the big screen... twice. Obtained a really poor quality VHS copy back in the days before DVD. Bought an uncut version on DVD only to discover that it was a poor quality transfer. At least it had 480 lines of resolution. When it came out on Blu-ray, I bought the uncut version. It was a tremendous improvement over the DVD but still not up to expected quality. I wonder how long it will be before some enterprising people bring out a 4K UHD version. If it comes out, I'll buy it.
