The Music Lovers

Ken Russell Reino Unido, 1971

Greg S.'s rating of the film La pasión de vivir

The one film, Rusell's exuberance aside I'd say is his most prestigious work. It's also one of the meanest films I've ever seen. The tortured artist trope has been used dozens of times but the contrasts between fairy tale highs and and mentally ill lows has never been more abrupt, Russell's later composer biopics would somewhat lose sight of the artists work but here art and reality juxtapose in a dizzying fashion.
