Ken Russell

The Devils is the best British movie of the past 40 years.

And Liztomania is the second best.

Song of Summer and Dance of the Seven Veils are the best films ever made for television.

All right, maybe I'm being a little unreasonable, but Ken Russell just died and I don't want to be thinking about anybody else's work right now.

I watched the Devils this afternoon. 40 years old? 40 years ahead of us, more like. 

The history of postwar British cinema goes like this. First there was Michael Powell, then there was Ken Russell. The End.
