directed by Stanley Kubrick
United States, 1960


Stanley Kubrick directed a cast of screen legends – including Kirk Douglas as the gladiator that led a Roman slave revolt – in the sweeping epic that defined a genre and ushered in a new era. Today Kubrick’s film, the first to openly defy Hollywood’s blacklist, remains a cinematic landmark.
