Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Portrait of a Goon online

Yes, thank-you so much Iain.

They do say the best comedians experienced a life of tragedy, before they became comedians.

He certainly looks different here than what I remember him looking like in 1973's The Three Musketeers, which is where I 1st came across Spike Milligan.

While there were other members of The Goons and guest appearances, the 2 main members, besides Spike Milligan, were Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers.

Thanks so much for sharing Iain.  I've been wanting to see this for many years now.  Definitely, not one of his best, but still quite impressive and inventive, especially compared to the crap being made today.
Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Amelia and the Angel online

Suddenly a lot of Ken stuff.  As well as Portrait of a Goon, the BFI now have Ken's amateur film Amelia and the Angel online
"A young angel scours London for her wings in this tender short by the young Ken Russell"

The film is here

A short and sublime film, really beautiful.  Made in 1958 and 26 minutes lomg.  Spot Ken in a cameo, the passer-by the girl runs into.

Ken's early television film Spike Milligan, Portrait of a Goon is now online

Spike Milligan was a famous British comedian, who wrote the cult radio series The Goon Show.  Ken's film consists of Milligan talking to camera, mainly reflective rather than funny, with some madcap interludes.  Not one of his best films, but still good to see it.

It was broadcast on 6 Dec 1959 and lasts just over 9 minutes.

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Tommy at the BFI in London
« Last post by Iain Fisher on September 10, 2019, 08:04:15 PM »
The British Film Institute are showing Tommy from 22-30 Nov 2019. 

"Ken Russell interprets The Who’s concept album as a mix of high-energy kitsch and darker psychological nightmare."

But "We have imported a print from France for these screenings as there is no longer a good print available in this country. The print will have French subtitles which we hope will not impair your enjoyment."  Sad there is no good print available in the UK.

Sarah Kane discussion / Kane inspired "When The Dark Hits Me" in Malaysia
« Last post by Iain Fisher on September 01, 2019, 08:09:01 PM »
A Kane inspired play in Malaysia

"When The Dark Hits Me is inspired by the late British contemporary playwright Sarah Kane’s work 4.48 Psychosis. There is no specific plot in this play, which is a type of stream of consciousness drama. The main story is about a mental illness patient’s inner struggle. He is surrounded by medical staff all day long. In the process, he has not been really understood. This is his sincere confession to the world, conveying his love to people in an extremely cruel way."

The performances are in the repurposed warehouse space of KongsiKL.  It is a graduation production by New Era University College’s Department of Drama & Visuals. Show is in Mandarin with English surtitles.

Details are here

I was expecting Tommy to be on the list as well.

Song of Summer is probably the perfect television film (and I'd put The Devils as Ken's perfect cinema film).  It is well worth watching.  The original started with some Laurel and Hardy footage, but this was later removed when the estate of Laurel and Hardy wanted royalties.  In the last DVD issue (by the British Film Institute I think) they added some silent era film (not Laurel and Hardy) which did just as well.
