From the Paper:

"From an historical standpoint, the film Spartacus, does not truly attempt to mimic the actual events or historical recorded of the time depicted in the film. Stanley Kubrick's 1960 film was taken up mid-stream. The film had lost its original director but he was ultimately responsible for helming the significant majority of the film. At the opening of the film, Sparatcus is purchased by a slave trader who operates a school for training gladiators. The director's vision for this film is obviously stunted. Truth be known about Spartacus, it represented a significant change in the overall aspect of film and political observation. The vision Kubrick had for the film was much larger than he could get. The film Spartacus, represents one of the most significant films of its genre in that it pioneered much of the heavy combat scenes that would later earn other films recognition and Oscars. While Kubrick came into the film late, the process still went well and the film has become one of the most beloved films of all time. This is a film of great strides toward the political epic that actually changes the world."
