Putting another notch in the "how had I not seen this?" list. Loved the campiness and overall visual style. Melodramatic in the right ways. A bit long but hardly a complaint. I could watch the prologue over and over.
Reviewing classics that you managed to never see until recently rarely yields any worthwhile insight for anyone involved. I will say, the hype regarding the cinematography did not do it justice. Stunning looking start to finish.
