Caligula is one of the few movies to ever garner "0 stars" from Roger Ebert. Even it's writer, Gore Vidal, wants nothing to do with it. This historical drama has earned its reputation as a film that crosses every line imaginable thanks to its producer, Bob Guccione, who is the founder of Penthouse magazine. He had the idea to make a big budget Hollywood film, and then introduce hardcore sex scenes starring his Penthouse Pets. Were that all he did, the movie would be little more than standard porn fare, the precursor to today's XXX mockbusters like Million Dollar Booty, The Gaytrix, and Cum In 60 Seconds. Bob Guccione didn't stop there, though. This film violates its audience by demonstrating as many taboo subjects as possible, including infanticide, incest, genital mutilation, forced anal fisting, and so many more. It's cast is also superb, with Malcolm McDowell, Peter O'Toole, and Helen Mirren all hamming it up maniacally. If you have no boundaries or good taste, then you will love this film as much as I do.
