Luchino Visconti's 1971 classic Death in Venice — starring gay actor Dirk Bogarde — has been Screen Shot 2018-12-07 at 1.14.56 PM restored by Cineteca di Bologna, Istituto Luce - Cinecittà and is beginning an engagement at NYC's Quad Cinema December 14.

The adaptation of Mann's novel — about a composer who is destroyed by his unquenchable desire for boy — has been called one of the best films ever made, and it's long been hailed as a gay classic. It was certainly a bold choice for Bogarde, and it would probably be interesting to see how a previously praised film about a man obsessed with a 16-year-old plays in 2018.
