The clip commudus political aspirations from Gladiator (2000) with Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen Who are they to lecture me? Commodus, the Senate has its uses. What uses? All they do is talk. It should be just... you and me and Rome. Don't even think it! There's always been a Senate. Rome has changed. It takes an emperor... -to rule an empire. -Of course, but leave the people their- Illusions. Traditions. My father's war against the barbarians- He said it himself, it achieved nothing. But the people loved him. The people always love victories. Why? They didn't see the battles. What do they care about Germania? They care about the greatness of Rome. The greatness of Rome. Well, what is that? It's an idea- greatness. Greatness is a vision. Exactly. A vision. Do you not see, Lucilla? I will give the people a vision of Rome, and they'll love me for it. And they'll soon forget the tedious sermonizing of a few dry, old men. I will give the people the greatest vision of their lives.
