Listeners, film fanatics, Criterion Channel subscribers--lend us your ears! Mike and Dan come to praise the greatness of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1953 adaptation of Julius Caesar. Everyone talks about Brando in this--and rightly so--but there are many terrific performances in what Dan calls Shakespeare's Oceans 11. So ignore that soothsayer and give it a listen--it's not the Ides of March, anyway!
