After a heavy night of cuddly drinking and pub-chanting, Visconti shows wasted members of the SA taking each other to bed: some crossed-dressed, some bare-chested and blonde, some old, paunchy, and Bear-like hairy. Cut to the SS arriving on boats, motorbikes, and jeeps. Without hesitation they enter the compound and execute the homosexual SA members at first sight. Despite a few expressive shots, most of the violence feels disjointed and clumsy. But what sticks with you is the imagery of penis-shaped helmet Nazis walking over (and on) their once fellow Nazis... now bare-bottomed and bleeding. I'm left wanting more after watching Visconti's version of the event, but the fact that at least one depiction of it exists on film is good to know. Now, to know more, get out those books, do research, check sources, and keep the curiosity of this historically significant event alive, because the establishment - all across the board - sure seem like they want it to die.
