A drawing of Ken Russell. Fine but not spectacular.
Reed and Ken Russell
This started as a good Oliver Reed site, and was now being expanded into a Ken Russell site, though hasn't been updated for a long while. Reviews and photos.
"Reed found a soulmate in the likes of Keith Moon who he met while filming "Tommy." Moon may have been the only person who could match Reed drink for drink. Reed remains the only British film star who never had any stage work of any kind".
|Asheville Film Festival 2005. A good short overview of
Ken's work with photos.
"There was no such thing as MTV and the immense debt owed to Russell's film by the music-video form is incalculable. It's also worth noting that Tommy was the first film to use the Dolby recording system, and the first film to be made in Surround Sound, albeit in an experimental form called "Quintophonic" sound. Everything about the film was new, fresh, shining. The ad campaign claimed, without characteristic hyperbole, "Your senses will never be the same." More than a movie, Tommy was an experience. And it remains so." Thanks to Steve for the link.

A discussion on Ken Russell and Leomania and lots of other things chaired by Ken Hanke (Ken Russell's biographer). It was recommended, but it hasnīt really been active for a long while.
"Films I would re-evaluate? French Dressing is top of that list. I might have to rethink some of Billion Dollar Brain, too. Women in Love seems better to me now than then. I know I badly underrated Valentino and think I overrated Altered States".
