Caligula (1979)

[Malcolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, Helen Mirren, Peter O'Toole]

The rise and fall of the notorious Roman Emperor Caligula, showing the violent methods that he employs to gain the throne, and the subsequent insanity of his reign - he gives his horse political office and humiliates and executes anyone who even slightly displeases him. He also sleeps with his sister, organizes elaborate orgies and embarks on a fruitless invasion of England before meeting an appropriate end. There are various versions of the film, ranging from the heavily truncated 90-minute version to the legendary 160-minute hardcore version which leaves nothing to the imagination (though the hardcore scenes were inserted later and do not involve the main cast members).

At 0:21:22, a man juggles 3 clubs.
At 1:24:58, a man keeps many plates spinning on top of tall sticks for nearly 5 minutes.
At 1:57:56, two men juggle and pass fire torches in the background for about a minute.
