I do not have the sources to make it a proper answer, it is just vaguely bouncing at the back of my memory!

Goodfellas? There is a narration by the leading character of the difference between mob life and mundane life. Also Fight Club seems in keeping with the quote?

comment How did Maximus become a slave?
I am not an expert but generally depression means people find it difficult to motivate themselves. My impression, when the actual arena opened, was that the 'joy of battle' motivated him a little. It was enough to get him going and gave him something to vent his rage on.

comment How did Maximus become a slave?
I don't think he cared at that point. It did not seem to occur to him that he might be able to get to Caesar until the slave owner mentioned it. Do not underestimate how depression can effect people. At that point his wife and child were dead, as far as he was concerned had nothing to life for until the potential for revenge appeared.

comment How did Maximus become a slave?
I cannot remember who it was as it has been several years since I saw the film but one of the slavers or fellow slaves mentions him being a desterter, I think it was as he was trying to disfigure the tatoo? Is it really a large gap? He is found, barely alive, by someone who sold him to a gladiator stable. Exactly what happens is hazy as we are seeing it from Maximus's point of view.

+1 S you think that the issue was they were staying in the village at all, rather than staying there in particular?

comment Why did Daryl take the cash and jewelry?
Money has whatever value people think it has. People in a large community might still use traditional currency, someone who might not altogether be in their right mind might well simply accept it out of habit etc. The shinies are slightly more likely to be useful but having money is rarely worse than not having money and being as it is so easy to carry and conveniently to hand he may as well take it on the off chance.
