Editorial Reviews


This is a worthy study of a director who moved too far toward the margins to endure.... Recommended. (CHOICE, May 2010)

Tom Wallis's essay on Tommy (1975) finds that both Russell and Townshend wish to 'transcend and parody' their respective genres, and treats the film in question with a sensitivity rare in writing on rock music which often oscillates between poles of enthusiastic fandom and Adornite misanthropy....In this book, Russell emerges, variously, as a profoundly aesthetic maker of lush costume drama, a gore maestro, pop artist, dogged amateur and commentator on the vagaries of Thatcherism....To say that a 'definitive' Russel does not emerge from this book of essays is far from a criticism— it is a testament to one of Britain's most visionary, contrary and multi-faceted film-makers. (Journal Of British Cinema and Television)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well researched set of essays on Ken's massively influential output of film and writing. Although 'tough going' in parts, the intelligent reader will glean much new information and insightful and stimulating comment. Highly recommended for those who wish to know this masterful film maker's art more intimately.
