Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: It's the Little Things--in LOTWW--That Count
« Last post by BoyScoutKevin on December 17, 2018, 07:52:22 PM »
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.

Angus
James
Mrs. Trent

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

Though, it is possible that Eve is an asexual.

Le Repaire du Ver Blanc

Eve (Catherine Oxenberg)
1. Not only is Sylvia doubled by a stunt double in the scene set in in the cave with the white worm, but so is Eve.

Angus (Peter Capaldi)
1. Angus' playing the bagpipes while wandering around inside Temple House speaks to Ken's skill as both a cinematographer and director, as the scene was shot in only one take.

2. One benefit of being bitten is apparently one does not need glasses after being bitten. Angus is wearing glasses ere he is bitten, but not afterwards. Actually, except for Peters, he is the only one in the film to be seen wearing glasses.

3. How did he get back so quickly to Mercy Farm? We know that James drove back in his car, but how did Angus get back at the same time as James?

Miscellaneous
1. Eat and drink. Two times people are seen eating and/or drinking. With the 10 previous times, that is a dozen times people are seen eating/and or drinking in the film.

2. Where is the smoke coming from at Temple House? There is no obvious source of anything flammable in the concluding scene at Temple House.

Next time: concluding with sexual orientation

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: The Mystery of Dr Martinu

After watching the film, I agree with Iain's criticism that Martinu's compositions are not justly used, and that any bit of stock music could have blended with the imagery just as well.  Which of course is crazy considering Ken's usual brilliance of combining image with music.  I guess even the best can have an off day.  Still I found the visuals quite compelling and at the end I was moved by the story.  Definitely worth seeing.

I totally agree.  Definitely not one of Ken's defining moments.  The film has the production values of one of those strange straight to VHS 1990's Christian films.  Still, I like the DIY feel of the piece and overall the film is quite entertaining.
