Movies Influenced by Satyricon
I would like to compile a list of movies that reflect a Satyricon influence, overt or otherwise. What other films have made you think that the director must have watched Satyricon?
For me, the most obvious answer is CALIGULA. The scenes in Tiberius' palace, for example, play in large part like a more sexually explict take on (one might say rip-off of) Fellini's approach, complete with grotesque figures, a feeling of dreamlike dislocation, and an overwhelming range of simultaneous activities and emotions. The scene where Caligula observes three Senators covered in mud (?) plotting to kill the Emporer (?) had the same quality, where you feel like you've dreamed the scene rather than watched it (if you have any idea what I mean). Of course, this movie in turn spawned a sub-genre of sleazy Roman exploitation films, but I doubt any of these reflect that same influence.
Other examples? (They don't have to be respectable.)
