The Roman Orgy

L'orgie romaine

directed by Louis Feuillade
France, 1911

Synopsis

Feuillade’s short film on the downfall of the debauched (read “effeminate”) Roman Emperor Heliogabalus in 218 is perhaps lacking in historical accuracy with its female senate for ladies fashions and rampaging lions escaped from the circus, but it looks fabulous.
