Watch Trumbo first. A significant movie. - Spartacus review by BP

Spoiler Alert
16/06/2020

Long and a bit clunky but enjoyable, so long as the neat hairstyles don't irritate you.

More particularly, an extra ingredient is its significance from a 1940-60s USA political point of view - McCarthy etc, then black equal rights. Until I re-watched recently, then saw Trumbo, I hadn't realised what an important film it was, for its time. And still is, actually.

A useful antacid for the indigestion caused by the present USA political administration.

You'll have to devote an evening, as it is so long, but time does not drag and there's a useful half time to fetch the coffee and whisky!
