Even if somewhat remarkable in scope as a Nazi decadence pic, it's all so ponderous and repulsive."

By boldly confronting the psycho-sexual depravity of the Nazi mindset, all the way through to is inevitable incestuous nature, Visconti creates a specific cinematic vernacular for viewing and discussing Hitler's manic ideology.

Visual remarkable, endlessly inventive critque of Hitler's Germany.

Lavishly mounted, Visconti's melodramatic spectacle draws parallels between the demise of a German rich and powerful clan and the rise of Hitler to power. One of the 1960s most popular and controversial international productions.

The Damned is a lot of things - bilious and perverse are the two first adjectives that spring to mind - but one thing it is not is a film of half-measures.

Occassionally overflows with self-indulgence and didacticism, weakening an otherwise and often potent critique

By the end of the opening sequence, the film has already indulged in pan-sexuality, corporate backstabbing, anti-reactionary suppression, pedophilia, and murder plots.

A spectacle of such greedy passion, such uncompromising sensation, and such obscene shock that it makes you realize how small and safe and ordinary most movies are.
