Mattsbypacinoyes - Have you guys seen Visconti's swan song, L'Innocente? If yes, what did you think? It's pure cinema heaven for me - decadent, passionate. Giannini's and Antonelli's sensual performances melt the period opulence. And Jennifer O'Neill is one of the most gorgeous women... Visconti has always known how best to frame beautiful actresses (Cardinale, Rampling, etc.).
I wanted to make room for it in my Top 10, but just couldn't replace any on my list.
I've seen it but it's been a while, passionate and decadent are goods words for it though, which is uniquely his style because the plot is sparse and clear, it's the style that's the key to it. I remember Giannini as being excellent here and that run of a few years where he in movie after movie for big international directors and different styles too - drama, romance, comedy (Wertmuller, Fassbinder too).
In the 60s-70s you had this type of film much more than you do now, a period piece that acts directly as an attack on the rich and their moral behavior (or lack thereof). L'Innocente is a distinctive film in its own right but it also fits in with films from Fassbinder, Pasolini, and Chabrol (who is a different type of filmmaker but with similar ideas on the rich).
