I couldn't sit through more than a minute of The Statue and I've never seen Little Faus and Big Halsey or the Charlton Heston version of Julius Caesar, so my vote has to go to Getting Straight which I hated even more intensely than Soldier Blue and Joe, neither of which I ever want to see again either.
