This review is from: Julius Caesar [DVD] (DVD)
A stunning account of a great man's life with an excellent climax, Julius Caesar is a brilliant attempt to bring this man's life to film. In fact, there was only one reason why I didn't give it five stars, but that reason is important to me: it wasn't nearly long enough. It tries to do in two hours what couldn't be managed in twenty. I may be expecting the impossible when I get angry when key moments of his life are distorted or completely ignored, but no attempt of an account of his life should be made if it is only to be two hours long. I don't know a huge amount about Julius Caesar, but it was painful to see years skipped without a mention of his many achievements. I still give it four stars because I love everything else about this film. It's immensely enjoyable from start to finish, and Jeremy Sisto makes a wonderful caesar.
