Like most filmmakers of early cinema, Louis Feuillade made works that traversed nearly every possible topic. THE ROMAN ORGY, admittedly not as salacious as the title would suggest, is a costume drama set during the reign of Heliogabalus (218 to 222AD). The Emperor makes the best of a decadent, lion-centric situation until the saboteurs arrive.

SO many extras and so many crowded into most of the scenes.Simplistic political statement. It was just ok for me. Still in all how priceless.
