Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s Caesar Must Die deftly melds narrative and documentary in a transcendently powerful drama-within-a-drama. The film was made in Rome’s Rebibbia Prison, where the inmates are preparing to stage Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
“ Ranks among the most involving adaptations of Shakespeare ever put on screen” – Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times
“ How can anyone not adore Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s ‘Caesar Must Die’? It enlarges your notion of what theater and cinema, what art itself, can do. – David Edelstein, New York Magazine
“The Tavianis do not leave us with the comforting notion that, if not for better circumstance, these men would be saints. The ferocity of the performances is inextricable from the men’s real-life criminality. We are baffled, moved, and repulsed – often at the same time – by the elemental spectacle before us. In this metaprison drama, the prison bars are both illusory and unbreakable. “Caesar Must Die” chronicles an exalted entrapment. Grade: A- ” – Peter Rainer, The Christian Science Monitor
