Reviews

Murderer, pervert, loving father, devoted son...< br/>< br/> He ruled the Roman Empire fewer than four years. His life was over at the age of 28, and yet the name of Caligula is notorious throughout the world.< br/>< br/> His reign was a legendary frenzy of lunacy, murder and lust. While Rome cowered in terror, Caligula killed for the sheer fun of it. Between executions, he staged spectacular orgies...made love to his own sister... and declared himself a living god.< br/>< br/> This is the story few know behind one of the most infamous figures of the Ancient World Caligula.< br/>< br/> This two-hour special examines controversial new theories about the man who ruled the world's mightiest empire with sadistic brutality.

I must strongly disagree with the previous reviewer. This is a solid documentary that analyses the life and reign of Caligula the third Emperor of Rome. The program begins by explaining his early life and upbringing where virtually all of his family were assassinated by the Emperor Tiberius, his uncle. His life during his late teens as a "guest" of his uncle on the island of Capri, where he received lessons in hedonistic excesses and the exercise of the power of life and death that would colour his later reign as Emperor. The documentary details his wild antics and lifestyle within the political and religious context of the time. Often labelled insane and power crazed, the contributing academics dispel this myth and relate an emperor who carefully planned his actions to maintain his power and humiliate those who displeased him. The end conclusion is that Caligula was a calculating amoral sociopath, rather than a madman. An interesting and informative documentary if you are interested in the Roman Empire.

A bit of a documentary that I enjoyed learning about the past, as I enjoy the movies as we'll even although they are a bit exaggerated .

One of the more interesting and perverted figures from Roman history. Was he really as bad as he was painted? get this DVD and find out for yourself.
