Ablaze in lurid Technicolor, this most spectacular of Douglas Sirk’s 50s melodramas is a truly fascinating artefact: a scathing anti-family values critique of middle class America, it tells the story of a powerful Texas oil family torn apart by rivalry, violence and sexual dysfunction.

Cited as an inspiration by everyone from Rainer Werner Fassbinder to Harmony Korine, this film must be seen (on the big screen) to be believed.
