    FOOLISH WIVES (1922)
    Erich von Stroheim's psychologically penetrating and visually gorgeous study of "innocent Americans" abroad, and their inability to understand the longstanding rules of behavior followed by their sophisticated European counterparts. An American diplomat and his wife journey to Monte Carlo, where he proceeds to bury himself in work. His wife, bored and upset with her husband's inattentiveness, and longing to experience the Continental nightlife, gradually succumbs to the flirtations of an elegant and charming "Count" -- who, in actuality, is merely a Russian military officer out to seduce her. As events come tumbling to a disastrous conclusion, the woman learns a valuable lesson about the meaning of true nobility, and the difference between appearance and reality.

    This documentary explores the life and work of Erich Von Stroheim, one of cinema's earliest geniuses and a notoriously obsessive artist. Using interviews, rare photographs and clips from von Stroheim's masterworks as well as his more obscure films, THE MAN YOU LOVED TO HATE presents a compelling picture of the enigmatic writer, actor, and director.
