Would be interested in viewing Ken Russell's films


Recommended Posts

I very rarely see his films shown. I don't even know if TCM has ever shown them. I think he's first rate. The only film that I have recorded of his is "Women in Love", which I must have recorded off HBO or something years ago. I have seen several of his films over the years, including "The Music Lovers", "Tommy", The Devils, Altered States, Gothic and The Lair of the White Worm.


In addition to his films I saw two shorter dramas that Russell directed in the mid 60's for the BBC. "Always on Sunday" about the life of the French painter Henri Rousseau. The other drama was "Issadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World". I saw both of these films in the 70's on PBS. I don't know if they are still available but they are excellent and left a lasting impression on me.


All of the Russell films that I have seen have a great deal of energy...Baroque style.
