Chris' Film Club: Gladiator

Continuing the theme of 'Best Picture Oscar Winners' we have Ridley Scott's Roman epic, Gladiator. The film sees Russell Crowe's Roman general betrayed by the son of the Emperor, and he is sold into slavery. He fights his way up the ladder as a gladiator (hence the name) and soon finds himself performing for his old enemy.

The film also stars the gloriously evil Joaquin Phoenix, and the less gloriously evil Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed (in his final film) and Djimon Hounsou.
