Review: ‘Senso’ uncovers a visually splendid Italian melodrama rarely seen in America

Directed by Luchino Visconti, released in Italy in 1954 and now playing at the Nuart in West Los Angeles in a new digital restoration, this beautifully shot film about the deranging power of mad, doomed love certainly has a history that makes it qualify as what the French call a film maudit, a cursed film.
