Kenn Russell was one of the few directors who could rival Kubrick for his cinematic acuity. While he may have tossed off a few dogs (Lisztomania and Tommy), he knew how to tell a story.
And now a WARNING: on the back of the box is printed the following: "This disc is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play back in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives". Yeah, really -- This is some kind of cut rate disc manufacturing process, so mine failed quickly. Be smart and, if you can, back it up immediately. Thanks for nothing MGM
