Lent: Part 7

Julius Caesar (1953) – I spent two hours trying to come up with something funny or at least irreverent to say about this movie, but even Marlon Brando–the most predominantly American member of the classically trained cast–managed to deliver speeches that brought tears to my eyes. The best I’ve got is to say that I would do unspeakably filthy things to Marlon Brando, James Mason, and, yes, even John Gielgud.

If I may “borrow” a line from a facebook friend of a facebook friend: “Look out, Casca is going to come at you with a knife on March 15th” might have been a more useful prophecy.
