Absum

«It is rather reminiscent of the scene in Gladiator when Maximus, the Russell Crowe character, having ruthlessly dispatched two lesser combatants, turns to a jeering crowd and asks: “Are you not entertained?” Well, no, seems to have been Abramovich’s answer.
(...)
When Proximo, the manager of the group of gladiators of which Maximus is a part, encourages him to take more time, to show more artistry in his fighting, Maximus points out that he has killed, and that is all he is required to do. “That’s enough for the provinces,” Proximo replies, “but not enough for Rome.”

Nor, it seems, for Roman.»
