Hi,

Does it mean that the neo-baroque is as addicted to games as its inspiration in the Roman Empire? Does it make sense to you?


"
Our era likewise is dominated by displays of power and wealth, by an apparently insatiable cruelty, and by an immense (and immensely pleasurable) playfulness. The neo-baroque is as addicted to games as the old baroque, and indeed as its inspiration in the Roman Empire—whence the success of Gladiator (2000), a film that has the honesty to revel in the violent games it depicts, avoiding the hypocrisy of earlier sword-and-sandals epics."

    and indeed as its inspiration in the Roman Empire = and indeed, the neo-baroque is as addicted to inspiration in the Roman Empire as the old barque was.
