Julius Caesar (1953). The growing ambition of Julius Caesar is a source of major concern to his close friend Brutus. Cassius persuades him to participate in his plot to assassinate Caesar but they have both sorely underestimated Mark Antony.

This is a solid adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous play, grounded in the honestly great performances of Marlon Brando and James Mason. The best part is, of course, the iconic Mark Antony speech, but the whole thing is worth checking out, particularly for the actors and the direction of it. 7.5/10.

Dostluk üzerine

Illam meae si partem animae tulit

Maturior vis, quid moror altera,

Nec charus aeque, nec superstes

Integer? Ille dies utramque

Duxit ruinam

Mademki zamansız bir ölüm seni, ruhumun yarısı olan seni alıp götürdü, yeryüzünde varlığımın yarısından, en aziz parçasından yoksun yaşamakta ne anlam var? O gün ikimiz birden öldük.

-Horatius
