Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe is a film that I would not call historical as it is far from a biographical telling of a real life character. It could be classified as a near perfect meshing of realism and reality and I would compare it to an artist’s rendering of what may have happened. This film did not necessarily lay out facts, dates, and timelines instead it gave you a photographic view of what the life was like back in these times. A man’s priorities were different than they are now and Maximus was a symbol of the greatest men of these times, the ideal man some would say. Russell Crowe portrayed a character that shows the duality of man with his love and loyalty to his wife and son, as well as his strict discipline and pride that was brought to light when displaying his affection and loyalty for Rome, a city he had never seen prior to the story told on the screen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
