Review quote

'Cyrino has gathered 16 original and entertaining essays by leading international film scholars and classicists exploring how images of a dissolute Rome, as well as of alternative sexualities (especially homoerotic) in ancient Greece, have influenced modern films and TV series ... Film buffs, fans of the classics, and anyone interested in ideologies of love and sex will find much to enjoy in this well-edited volume. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above.' - CHOICE
