Drusilla, fearful of Macro's influence, persuades Caligula to get rid of him. Caligula sets up a mock trial in which Gemellus is intimidated into testifying that Macro murdered Tiberius, then has Macro's wife Ennia banished from Rome.

After Macro is executed in a gruesome public game , Caligula appoints Tiberius' former adviser Longinus as his personal assistant while pronouncing the docile Senator Chaerea as the new head of the Praetorian Guard.

Drusilla tries to find Caligula a wife among the priestesses of the goddess Isis , the cult they secretly practice. Caligula wants to marry Drusilla, but she insists they cannot marry because she is his sister.

Instead, Caligula marries Caesonia , a priestess and notorious courtesan , after she bears him an heir. Drusilla reluctantly supports their marriage.

Meanwhile, despite Caligula's popularity with the masses, the Senate expresses disapproval for what initially seem to be light eccentricities.

Darker aspects of Caligula's personality emerge when he rapes a bride and groom on their wedding day in a minor fit of jealousy and orders Gemellus's execution to provoke a reaction from Drusilla.

After discovering that Caesonia is pregnant, Caligula suffers severe fever. Drusilla nurses him back to health.

Just as he fully recovers, Caesonia bears him a daughter, Julia Drusilla. During the celebration, Drusilla collapses with the same fever he suffered.

Soon afterward, Caligula receives another ill omen in the form of a blackbird. Despite his praying to Isis out of desperation, Drusilla dies from her fever.

Initially unable to accept her death, Caligula suffers a nervous breakdown and rampages through the palace, destroying a statue of Isis while clutching Drusilla's body.

Now in a deep depression , Caligula walks the Roman streets disguised as a beggar; he causes a disturbance after watching an amateur performance mocking his relationship with Drusilla.

After a brief stay in a city jail, Caligula proclaims himself a god and becomes determined to destroy the senatorial class, which he has come to loathe.

The new reign he leads becomes a series of humiliations against the foundations of Rome—senators' wives are forced to work in the service of the state as prostitutes, estates are confiscated, the old religion is desecrated and the army is made to embark on a mock invasion of Britain.

Unable to further tolerate his actions, Longinus conspires with Chaerea to assassinate Caligula. Caligula enters his bedroom where a nervous Caesonia awaits him.

Another blackbird appears but only Caesonia is frightened of it. The next morning, after rehearsing an Egyptian play, Caligula and his family are attacked in a coup headed by Chaerea.

Caesonia and Julia are murdered, and Chaerea stabs Caligula in the stomach. With his final breath, the Emperor defiantly whimpers "I live! Claudius witnesses the entire ordeal and is proclaimed Emperor by the Praetorian Guard.

The men's magazine Penthouse had long been involved in film funding, helping invest in films made by other studios, including Chinatown , The Longest Yard and The Day of the Locust , but it had never produced a film on its own.

Guccione was concerned that Vidal's script contained several homosexual sex scenes and only one scene of heterosexual sex, which was between Caligula and his sister Drusilla.

Elaborate sets were built by production designer Danilo Donati, who also designed the film's costumes, jewelry, hair styles, wigs and makeup.

In an interview for Time magazine, Vidal said that in film production, directors were "parasites" and a film's author was its screenwriter; in response, Brass demanded Vidal's removal from the set and Guccione agreed.

During the film's production, McDowell took members of the production to dinner at an expensive restaurant to celebrate England's win in a football match against the Italian team.

He left the choreographer to pay for the meal, saying he had forgotten to bring enough money. McDowell offered her a signet ring, a prop from the film.

She refused because it belonged to the production company. Brass decided not to focus much on Danilo Donati's elaborate sets, and intentionally kept the Penthouse Pets in the background during sex scenes.

He focused instead on women whom Guccione considered to be unattractive. Filming concluded on 24 December His rough-cut was disassembled afterwards and the film was edited by several editors, changing its tone and structure significantly by removing and re-arranging many scenes, using different takes, a slower editing style and music other than Brass intended.

Guccione and Lui "hired a skeleton crew, snuck back into the studios at night, raided the prop room" [17] and shot hardcore sex scenes to edit into the film.

Even though there were a number of editors on the film, their names were not credited. Instead, the credit "Editing by the Production" is given during the opening credits.

Peter O'Toole was reluctant to re-record his English dialogue when it was needed. He stayed away from the film's producers until he finally agreed to re-record his dialogue in a Canadian recording studio.

The film was scored by Bruno Nicolai under the name Paul Clemente. In the United States, Guccione refused to submit Caligula to the MPAA because he did not want the film to receive a rating—even X —which he considered to be "demeaning".

Rather than leasing prints to exhibitors, the distributor rented theaters that specialized in foreign and art films for the purpose of screening Caligula exclusively [40] in order to keep the film out of theaters that showed pornographic films.

Federal officials did not declare the film to be obscene. In Boston , authorities seized the film. Atlanta prosecutors threatened legal action if the film was to be screened in the city, but experts testified in court on behalf of the film, and Atlanta, too, declared that the film was not obscene.

The film was banned in Australia, where it continues to be banned in its uncut form as of [update]. On appeal, court vacated the award, ruling that punitive damages were not allowed by the law governing the case.

Caligula received generally negative reviews. Ebert wrote, "In the two hours of this film that I saw, there were no scenes of joy, natural pleasure, or good sensual cheer.

There was, instead, a nauseating excursion into base and sad fantasies. Caligula continued to garner negative reception long after its release.

The site's critical consensus reads, "Endlessly perverse and indulgent, Caligula throws in hardcore sex every time the plot threatens to get interesting.

Writers for The Hamilton Spectator and St. Louis Post-Dispatch said Caligula was one of the worst films they'd seen. Club , Keith Phipps said, "As a one-of-a-kind marriage of the historical epic and the porn film Caligula deserves a look.

Caligula is considered to be a " cult classic ". In , Caligula was released on DVD and Blu-ray in an "Imperial Edition", [63] which featured the unrated theatrical release version and a new version featuring alternative sequencing from the original theatrical release and without the explicit sexual content shot by Guccione, marking the first attempt to reconstruct the film into a version closer to Brass' intentions.

This edition also includes audio commentaries featuring Malcolm McDowell and Helen Mirren, and interviews with the cast and crew. In February , Penthouse announced that a new cut of the film was being edited by Alexander Tuschinski.

The film explores his relationship to Caligula , the process of reconstructing Brass's vision and Penthouse CEO Kelly Holland 's backing of the project.

Producer Bob Guccione , the magazine's founder, intended to produce an explicit pornographic film with a feature film narrative and high production values.

He cast Penthouse Pets as extras in unsimulated sex scenes filmed during post-production by himself and Giancarlo Lui.

Gore Vidal originated the idea for a film about the controversial Roman emperor and produced a draft screenplay under the working title Gore Vidal's Caligula.

The director Tinto Brass extensively altered Vidal's original screenplay, however, leading Vidal to disavow the film. The final screenplay focuses on the idea that "absolute power corrupts absolutely".

However, both Brass and Vidal disagreed with Guccione's use of unsimulated sexual content, which Brass refused to film. As a result, Brass also disavowed the film.

Caligula ' s release was met with legal issues and controversies over its violent and sexual content. Its uncut form remains banned in several countries.

The script was later adapted into a novelization written by William Johnston under the pseudonym William Howard. In , Penthouse announced that a new Director's Cut of the film was being edited by Alexander Tuschinski , with the approval of Brass's family.

In , another version of the film was announced to be released in the fall of that year, edited by E.

Caligula is the young heir to the throne of his great uncle , the Emperor Tiberius. One morning, a blackbird flies into his room; Caligula considers this a bad omen.

Fearing assassination, Caligula is afraid to leave but his sister and lover Drusilla persuades him to go. At Capri, Caligula finds that Tiberius has become depraved, showing signs of advanced venereal diseases , and embittered with Rome and politics.

Tiberius enjoys swimming with naked youths and watching degrading sex shows that include deformed people and animals. Caligula observes with fascination and horror.

Tensions rise when Tiberius tries to poison Caligula in front of Gemellus. Nerva commits suicide and Caligula tries to kill Tiberius but loses his nerve.

Proving his loyalty to Caligula, Macro kills Tiberius instead with Gemellus as a witness. After Tiberius' death and burial, Caligula is proclaimed the new Emperor, then proclaims Drusilla as his equal, to the apparent disgust of the Roman Senate.

Drusilla, fearful of Macro's influence, persuades Caligula to get rid of him. Caligula sets up a mock trial in which Gemellus is intimidated into testifying that Macro murdered Tiberius, then has Macro's wife Ennia banished from Rome.

After Macro is executed in a gruesome public game , Caligula appoints Tiberius' former adviser Longinus as his personal assistant while pronouncing the docile Senator Chaerea as the new head of the Praetorian Guard.

Drew A Super Reviewer. Jun 22, Cast members in this film are not wearing clothes more than they are.

Even at the very beginning of the film there is nudity. Very odd and graphic scenes throughout the film, beginning with full frontal male and female nudity swimming with the Roman emperor played by Peter O'Toole; Caligula anally fisting a groom after his wedding; a lesbian love scene that could be considered a porn scene; and a 10min long Roman orgy that is very pornographic complete with male and female oral and penetrating sex.

Really no true story. Script is terrible and this seemed like an excuse to film lots of nudity and sex and pass it off as a true film.

Patrick W Super Reviewer. Sep 28, Caligula is a chore to sit through, to the point where I finally started to fast-forward through scenes to get to the story!

I queue'd the film because it was notorious and I wanted to find out want the controversy was about. It is reminiscent of Fellini's Satyricon, with a garishly decadent Rome, but Caligula is a surprisingly poor film, given the names attached.

If you are interested to see what it is about, I suggest you first check out the Wikipedia article for details on the production issues.

Had I known, I might have saved a queue slot. Robert B Super Reviewer. Jul 17, It's all unimaginably indulgent sex, violence, vulgarity and blood riches, so I guess it's safe to say that the rehabilitation of Alex DeLarge didn't exactly pay off.

Man, I've heard of classy porn, but this, well, probably can't even be considered all that classy, because it is pretty much the beginning and the pinnacle of the modern cinematic movement to paint Rome like the grimy place of sin that it really was.

This film is probably more ambitious than it needs to be, and I say that not because porn should be this pricy Interesting how Peter O'Toole went from "Laurence of Arabia" to "Tiberius of a Man, Gore Vidal was a little crazy, though not quite as crazy as Caligula, and yet, I feel that the craziest dude associated with this film might very well be Malcolm McDowell, because he loved being involved in censorship boundary-pushers so much that he might not so much have been artistically ambitious, as much as he was just a sex addict.

If nothing else reflects that, it's his more recent projects which reflect that he may be a little bit mad from syphilis, because he used to be in some good stuff No, flawed though it may be, this film is decent, even if it is short on decency, and maybe a little bit of characterization.

Momentum out of the gate is momentarily stunted by limitations in immediate development which come to be compensated for by near-rich gradual exposition, and yet, characterization would be so much more meaty if it didn't get to be manufactured in feel, with types, occasionally of an almost cartoonish nature whose lack of humanity leave the intentionally unlikable character aspects to stand as too disconcerting for the convincing performances to completely make up for.

Subtlety issues shake a sense of genuineness to characterization, and they do more than just that, because even though there is arguably a little more subtlety to this film than many are saying, when that subtlety lapses, it tumbles, into cheesily trite scripted dialogue and set pieces, and direction which overemphasizes its atmosphere and, of course, its visuals.

The controversies surrounding this film could not be more just, as the violence is unnervingly graphic, and the sexual content - which ranges from simply racy to disturbing, if not out-and-out bizarre - is utterly pornographic, trying to carry some artistic weight which falls flat under a sense of trashiness which, honestly, stands firm throughout the film, - at least in its relatively realized and definitive two-and-a-half-hour-long version - devaluing it, even though it can admittedly be respected for being the most unique thing about this film.

Beyond that, this is more of the same as far as gritty, dramatic portraits on the corruption of a great power of Rome are concerned, complete with having its formulaic path outstay its welcome, for the film is so excessive that even its structure drags along, into aimlessness, under the weight of filler, if not meandering material which keeps the film from getting to its point in a punctual manner.

Momentum is retarded enough on paper, and Tinto Brass' direction makes matters all the worse, with a directorial, not thoughtfulness, but emptiness which isn't so recurrent that the film rarely compels, at least the patient, but frequent enough to dry the atmosphere up and make the problematic length of the drama all the more palpable, until, of all things, dullness sets in.

The film is reasonably entertaining on the whole, whether it be through campiness or through genuine effectiveness that guides the final product further than many say it does, but the more the film drags its feet, the harder it is to ignore how questionable such attempts at compensation as abrasive storytelling and graphic content are.

The final product fails to transcend underwhelmingness, but I disagree with those who say that glimpses of a rewarding film are lost, because as messy as the film very much so is, it does, in fact, do plenty of things right, at least stylistically As ambitious as the film is, even its technical value has its flaws, whether it be shoddy sound mixing, or filming so grainy that is sometimes bears resemblance to, well, '70s porn not that I keep up with that Visual style is solid, though not as much as the visuals themselves, and by that, I am not so much referring to the disturbing imagery, but rather to art direction by Danilo Donati which restores both the Roman Empire and Caligula's own flamboyant world, not especially impeccably, but nonetheless handsomely, and immersively.

If there is an artistic integrity to this stylish smut fest, then it is supported by a decent deal of money that goes into crafting a unique vision of Rome, in all its beauty and all its grime, and even though technical shortcomings stand, entertainment value is anchored by still-solid aesthetic value, just as it thrives on substance, or at least the concept of the substance.

Perhaps the idea behind this film, alone, undercuts some potential within its subject matter by placing more focus into the sleaze and corruption of Gaius Iulius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, rather than the politics and scale which films of this type normally focus on, but the truth is that through all of the grime and histrionics is a genuinely compelling dramatic portrait on corruption which holds the potential of being crafted into a rewarding, if not strong film.

The intentional and consequential misguidance of the storytellers hold so much of the drama back, yet the final product would not be as intriguing as it ultimately is without bona fide heights in Tinto Brass' direction, which, for all the attention to graphic content that, honestly, one might mostly blame occasional directors Giancarlo Lui and Bob Guccione for, and for all the dry spells, carries an almost captivatingly surrealist style which holds a sense of taste, punctuated by realized moments in dramatic storytelling which absorb unexpected depths in a drama so unsubtle in so many areas.

Of course, Brass does not breathe refreshing effectiveness into this film on his own, because if nothing else sustains your investment, it is Malcolm McDowell, who does more than he probably should in his portrayal of a corrupt lead who is rich with charisma and passion, and equally filled with evil, all of which McDowell captures in a layered, emotionally charged and altogether committed performance.

Caligula is written a little thinly, and that holds McDowell back a bit, yet McDowell's film-carrying portrayal of the lead is almost revelatory, and decidedly instrumental in making the final product genuinely engaging as a questionably crafted, but ultimately endearing epic.
