The recently deceased Ken Russell’s savage 1970 satire of Richard Strauss. Amazing to think that this was made for television. It’s an hour long – give yourself some time.

    Didn’t Richard Strauss appear as a sort of Dr Frankenstein — or Frank-N-Furter — villain at the end of Lisztomania? Or was that Wagner? I bleached most traces of that movie out of my mind, but the persistent brain-stains seem also to be the worst.

      They’re getting ready to release his x-rated nun-priest-devil movie in its uncut form. I saw a clip over at the Onion AV club. Terrifying. But this seemed worth presenting, especially for those who have read Fr. Smith’s confessions in Thanatos Syndrome.

    Weirly overrated director. Made a few composer films including one on Mahler. Thanks Matthew.

    When is Korrektiv going to make films?
