Visconti pulls out the stops with Wagnerian gusto in this lurid saga (originally X-rated in the U.S.) of a Krupp-like German industrial family that throws its support to the Nazis in the 1930s. Their devil's bargain yields spectacularly dire results, as the family descends into depravity and murder, and Germany itself is consumed in a storm of fire and blood - the latter most evident in the stunning recreation of the "Night of the Long Knives" massacre. In English and German with English subtitles. DCP digital
