(1960) dir Stanley Kubrick w/Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, John Gavin, Tony Curtis [184 min; 35mm]
Stanley Kubrick and Dalton Trumbo craft this stirring epic about the rebellious slave Spartacus (Douglas) and the uprising against the Roman Empire that he inspires.

★★★★★ “The great-granddaddy of Ridley Scott’s Gladiator hasn’t lost any muscle tone after nearly half a century, and Kirk Douglas’s direct, unpretentious performance as the great slave-rebel Spartacus is more engaging than ever.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“For gladiator movies, none can compare to Stanley Kubrick’s 1960 sweeping epic starring (and executive produced by) Kirk Douglas.” – Christian Gay, Brattle Film Notes
