Episode Seven: Gladiator

In this episode, we discuss Gladiator (2000), featuring orientalism, unfortunate Freudian weirdness, bad takes on imperialism, and... queer giraffes?

 

Minor correction: at about 31:30, Julia says "Commodus" where she should say "Maximus".

 

Mentioned:

The costuming in Troy: Fall of a City, unfortunately.
