RIP Ken Russell

Ken's wacky doc In Search of the English Folk Song, so good i kept it on our tivo-equivalent for about four years, then when the cable box went on the blink and it disappeared, just had to buy the DVD

first time i watched Tommy, this scene was what prompted me to turn it off. but i've come to appreciate the film subsequently

are there any other film directors who've been quite as obsessed with music as Ken?
