With its time-bending mix of elements from Ancient Rome, Fascist Italy, Fifties America, and Punk Britain, this radical reimagining of a theatrical classic offers a dark vision of violence, murder, rape, and revenge. Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc."
