Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: classic widows
« Last post by BoyScoutKevin on Yesterday at 05:34:39 PM »
As so typically Russell, the title can be seen to have two meanings.
1st. As an adjective. Remarkably and instructively typical.
2nd. Again as an adjective, but this time to mean those women who were once married to now deceased classical musical composers.

The date of this? 1995 or thereabouts?

Which means, are any of the widows featured in this, still living?

To be continued . . .

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: It's the Little Things--in LOTWW--That Count

Ken likes to fill his films with characters that have a sexual orientation besides heterosexual. His Lair of the White Worm is no different. What is different about his Lair of the White Worm is how murky some of the characters' sexual orientations are, and it does not clarify matters, when being bitten by the White Worm apparently changes a character's sexual orientation.

Except for Sylvia, who is apparently bisexual, all of these should be considered to be heterosexual.
