Film Cinema 3 hours 17 minutes


Director: Stanley Kubrick. Starring: Kirk Douglas, Jean Simmons, Peter Ustinov, Laurence Olivier, Charles Laughton, Tony Curtis. USA 1960. 197 mins.

Kubrick’s first film in epic mode (the sole occasion he worked as director-for-hire) recreates the slave revolt led by the Libyan gladiator Spartacus (Douglas) which panicked Rome around 73 BC. Written by left-wing scriptwriter (and former blacklist victim) Dalton Trumbo, Spartacus features a superb cast - particularly in the Roman roles - and displays a political and historical intelligence absent from most Hollywood epics.
