Butchered Caesar
30 October 2012 | by miss_lady_ice-853-608700See all my reviews

I couldn't make it through this butchered version of the play. Films of Shakespeare's plays are bound to have cuts but the cuts here have been done poorly, leading to a choppy version.

The cinematography is at some times interesting (as Brutus makes his funeral oration, we get a close-up of his bloody hands) and sometimes bizarre (as he does part of the oration, the camera shoots him upwards). There are a ridiculous amount of close-ups, probably to make the most of Cassius' creepy face.

David Bardley as Brutus is just bland. He's more like a Roderigo from Othello than a noble Roman. Completely ordinary and uncharismatic.

Charlton Heston probably fares best, although all his dignity goes out the window at the start, where he has to walk about in a baggy thong looking like Caesar's rent boy. He makes the funeral speech a little too ironic. Antony may be cleverer than he appears but he's not a total meanie.

All in all, don't bother watching this Caesar.
