He is perhaps the most criminally underrated great director of all time. He's earned an Oscar nom, and more early career accolades than many attempting his craft. But thanks to a late in life clash with commerciality, and a stern sense of self-importance, Ken Russell now stands as a pseudo-joke. He remains a great champion of his own Englishness, and has often used unusual platforms (Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, for example) to keep his reputation exposed and intact.

Phallic Frenzy: Ken Russell and His Films by Joseph Lanza
Cappella | 2013 | ISBN: 1556526695 | 384 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Ken Russell has made some of the most daring, disturbing, and beautifully photographed films of all time. Drawing from a wealth of historic and literary references, Russell’s subjects are astounding: deranged Ursuline nuns in a 17th-century French province, the inner demons of Mary Shelley and Lord Byron, the sexual angst of Tchaikovsky, the emotionally drained life of Rudolph Valentino, the messianism of a pinball wizard, the fury of lesbian vampires, the introspections of prostitutes. Russell’s movies offer not just brazen sensationalism but food for thought; they horrify yet inspire. Details

"Planets" - a documentary film by Ken Russell with the music of composer Gustav Holst in the performance of the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra.
Collage assembled from fragments of films, newsreels and advertisements from around the world and covers a wide period of time. Russell has received special permission from the composer's daughter, where she set a condition not to use pictures that show the atrocities of war. Therefore, we can only imagine what would be the choice of masters for the first theme: Mars.
The film is completely devoid of narration and voice acting, but his musical arrangement, which is based on the plot, the narrative has the same meaning as the video sequence, and, in fact, creates the atmosphere.
This is very unusual, stunning film was undeservedly forgotten. Want to believe that better quality video would be available soon ...
In this orchestral suite of 7 pieces. Each planet of the solar system (except Earth and Pluto) is devoted to his own plays, which, in principle, quite distinct (ie it can be executed and obeyed and separately).

At school, she is introduced to lovemaking by a bisexual physical education instructress.

Unable to accept a future of domesticity, she breaks with him, and eventually leaves home in search of her destiny.
