Ridley Scott’s movie Gladiator produced in 2000 is reminiscent of the great epic movies of the 1960s, such as Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago. It is monumental movie-making: visually thrilling, technically astonishing, and emotionally engaging. The film won multiple awards, including five Academy Awards at the 73rd Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor for Crowe, Best Costume Design, Best Sound and Best Visual Effects. It also received four BAFTA Awards at the 54th British Academy Film Awards for Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design and Best Editing. Since its release, Gladiator has also been credited with reinventing the swords and sandals genre and rekindling interest in entertainment centered around ancient Greek and ancient Roman culture, such as the TV series Rome.
