Foolish Wives

0 Love It
Save it
The first full-scale working-out of Stroheim's explorations of the ground between high society manners and terminal squalor and depravity. The plot centres on the sexual and criminal activities of Count Karamzin (Stroheim). The sumptuous visual style continually invites the viewer to indulge Karamzin's fantasies, only to undercut them with 'real life' details designed to shake the whole edifice.
