I watched this with my girlfriend, and we both loved it. We are both obsessed with Shakespeare and thought this was a wonderful slightly more historically accurate telling of that same story. It was really enjoyable to watch Caesar announce he was giving people money and farm land and then jump to the senators calling him a "corrupt monster." Brutus never really felt like the main character in this edit though, as we both were much more invested in Antony, his actor and his story.

Overall the editing was beautiful, and my girlfriend was awed by the opening and closing credits, as she's never seen a fan-edit before, so she was surprised by the opening title sequence. She also says to "Hurry up with Antony and Cleopatra."

Excellent work Kerr.
