5.0 out of 5 stars Ken Russell At His Best, January 10, 2000
By 
This review is from: Devils, The [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The Devils is one of Ken Russell's best films. It still packs a powerful punch some thirty years since its release. Reed and Redgrave are fantastic. The sets were designed by the infamous Derek Jarman and work perfectly with the flow of Russell's film. One can only hope this masterpiece will find its way to DVD with some commentary by Russell as are two of his low budget gems from the 80's, Salome's Last Dance and Lair of the White Worm. While few seem to ever cite Russell as an influence one need only take a look at Todd Haynes' Velvet Goldmine or Oliver Stone's The Doors or Natural Born Killers to see that his visionary style had an impact. For that matter, how much of MTV was built from Russell's film version of Tommy? I suspect quite a bit.
