Since Spartacus is seen by some viewers as less than a pure Kubrick film, a group of film buffs deign it to be less significant, entertaining and absorbing than his other films, but I've never understood that.

I'm still working through Kubrick's filmography - still have to watch most of his pre-Lolita work at this point - and I figured that Spartacus would be interesting because of its notorious reputation for being a mainstream Hollywood epic filmed by an idiosyncratic auteur like Kubrick.
