Phallic Frenzy is HERE!
Yes, I said "no books on Ken by other people" but the man has lived longer than Stalin and one of the Popes combined! He has a history and what is a study of history going to be with no book selection? At first I thought this was going to mostly rehash a British Picture but not at all after reading a few chapters. I now have to own every Ken book!
Here is a rare early unfinished film by Ken called "Knights on Bikes".
Here we see the greatness he would assume.
Welcome! My name is Super Amanda and you may already know me from my You Tube videos and Pin Up pictures. I study the life of and blog about the work of British film maker Ken Russell whom I've been blogging about since July 3rd 2011. Anyone can comment, you do not have to join blogger. All are welcome. Ken Russell fans and detractors alike, please chime in. If you are new to Ken Russell then you are severely parched of cultural literacy and must drink here. I also maintain a separate blog for rants and soliloquies which you can access through my profile or below. As in my profile portrait, I plan to enter the forest, enjoy the music and loosen nuts.
"We all see film differently. Memory also has a tendency to re-edit, re-shoot and even re-dub. A line like 'Play it again , Sam', even when the original dialogue is known to be different identifies Casablanca immediately. So if you should find within these pages any descriptions that conflict with the facts, they are that way, because that's how I remember them."
