“Caligula” (1979)

Roger Ebert infamously called this film “sickening, utterly worthless, shameful trash.” And honestly that’s a pretty apt description. There is nothing of value to be gained in this inexcusable pile of crap. The plot is borderline incomprehensible. The film sets are a joke. And it’s slow and tedious. The pacing in this film is so bad, this movie felt like it was 3 hours long (and I was watching the much shorter “R” rated cut). I wanted a film that explored who Caligula was, maybe explore the psyche of such an interesting historical figure. Instead we got a high-budget porno with zero intrigue, and no interest in understanding the historical background or figures. There is nothing redeemable here.
