Popular on 500px : Villa of the Emperor-Gladiator by Claudio_DeSat
Gladiator Año: 2000 Protagonistas: Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix y Connie Nielsen Frase favorita: “No nos ocurre nada que no estemos preparados para soportar” ¿Por qué no podemos dejar de verla? Porque nos hace sentir tal odio por Commodus que acompañamos a Maximus en su sed de venganza por toda Roma.
Joaquin Phoenix in the 'Gladiator', I believe he was 'robbed' of his Academy Award. He was brilliant as the evil, power hungry, sadistic Commodus. His acting was so excellent he 'inspired' another young actor, Jack Gleeson who is in Game of Thrones. He said he watched Joaquin for hours to get every nuisance just right. I think he nailed it!

[Commodus - Joaquin Phoenix. Gladiator] "You wrote to me once, listing the four chief virtues: Wisdom, justice, fortitude and temperance. As I read the list, I knew I had none of them. But I have other virtues, father. Ambition. That can be a virtue when it drives us to excel. Resourcefulness, courage, perhaps not on the battlefield, but... there are many forms of courage. Devotion, to my family and to you. But none of my virtues were on your list.
