This is the kind of movie Stephen was alluding to spiking into my brain. It's dreamlike beauty is forever. Why aren't movies like this anymore? Yum.

Visconti didn't even make movies like this after Il Gattopardo (he made a feeble attempt to recreate the moonlit passions of Le Notte bianche in a few sequences of Ludwig, but it ended up the palest of retreads), so I'm not surprised no one else was able to accomplish it.
