Home / Now Showing / CALIGULA: THE ULTIMATE CUT
Shadowed by the murder of his entire family, the young, wary Caligula (Malcolm McDowell) eliminates his devious adoptive grandfather (Peter O’Toole) and seizes control of the declining Roman Empire, descending into a spiral of depravity, destruction, and madness. A treatise on the corrupting influence of power, this extensive reconstruction of the notorious 1980 spectacle, CALIGULA: THE ULTIMATE CUT restores the complete performances of McDowell and Helen Mirren, as the promiscuous Caesonia, from an unprecedented amount of never before seen footage. With John Gielgud, amid sumptuous designs by two-time Oscar winner Danilo Donati. An official selection of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
