i watched this movie in the range of 5 to 12 years ago. i dont remember much about it, and as a result my searches for it have not turned it up. the movie was about masada the ancient fortress in israel. it was a modern movie so probably not made before 1990. i remember 2 scenes in particular one scene was soldiers from one of the sides (cant remember which) coming up behind night sentries and slitting their thoats. another scene was the josephus problem. the rebels were standing in a circle and they were each killing the man to their side.
i know that i dont provide much, but it would be great if someone remembers this film
