An astonishing portrait of decadent Imperial Austria that's one of the greatest of all silent films, even in its butchered extant version.

As this extravagant, wickedly ironic 1928 melodrama shows, Erich von Stroheim was not only a supreme (if typecast) actor but one of the greatest silent-era directors.

One of the most eccentric and fascinating vanity projects in the history of film.

It is the love scenes, played beneath shimmering apple blossoms in lyrical soft focus, that stick in the memory, ironically turning what is now the film's ending into one of the director's most bitterly pessimistic scenes.

Even minor Stroheim is considerably better than most other filmmakers' major work.

Because of what they are called upon to do and not because of the performances of the players the characters are not much more human than a troupe of Robots.

Some beautiful cinematography distracts from the dramatic inadequacies, but it's not the best product of its time.
