19. Whore (1991)
Post your own question for this film.

20. Trapped Ashes (2006)
Besides "Aria," Ken's only other anthology film of those listed, would he have done better to make more films that were part of an anthology?

Bonus question
Why does the dialogue in "Lair of the White Worm" sound better when it is dubbed into French, German, Italian, etc., then it does when in its original English?

And that concludes that.

Next time: Lair of the White Worm from the Hosts of the Two-headed Space Mule

17. Lair of the White Worm (1988)
In the film, a boy scout or scout falls prey to the female villain. If it had been a Girl Guide instead of a boy scout or scout would the same scenes featuring the boy scout or scout and the female villain have worked as equally well or better?

18. The Rainbow (1989)
Why do so few of Ken's films deal with the subject of lesbianism?

15. Aria (1987)
One of the few of Ken's theatrical films to depict a racial minority. Why are so few racial minorities depicted in Ken's films?
See also 5, 8, 9, and 19.

16. Salome's Last Dance (1988)
Does this contain the worst ending of all of Ken's films?

13. Crimes of Passion (1984)
Unlike most films by most directors, where one has the female sexually assaulted by the male, here we have a case of the male being sexually assaulted by the female. Thus, what is Ken's interest in seeing the male sexually assaulted by the female?
See also: 16, 17.

14. Gothic (1986)
Is the robot depicted here based, if unknowingly, upon the one seen in 1927's "Metropolis?"

11. Valentino (1977)
One of the strengths of Ken's films is the editing. (See "Women in Love.") With the scenes in this film seeming to drag on forever, is this the worst edited of Ken's films?

12. Altered States (1980)
Another one of the strengths of Ken's films is his use of light and dark. Did Ken's use of light reach its pinnacle in this film?

09. Tommy (1975)
Ken's most accessible film, even for someone who has never seen one of Ken's films?

10. Lisztomania (1975)
Ken's most underrated film, even among his fans?

05. The Devils (1971)
This or Women in Love? Ken's best film?

06. The Boyfriend (1971)
Apparently Ken's only G-rated film. Should Ken have made more such films?

03. Women in Love (1969)
Apparently, only the 2nd mainstream film to depict male full frontal nudity, and with most mainstream nudity being female nudity, why is male nudity, full frontal and otherwise, so often seen in Ken's films?
See also: 05, 11, 14, 16, 17, 18.

04. The Music Lovers (1970)
Again, apparently, only the 2nd mainstream film to depict oral sex, and again why is it so often depicted in one of Ken's films?

01. French Dressing
Apparently Ken's only full length feature film in black and white. Would it have been better, if he had shot it in color?

02. Billion Dollar Brain
Even in Ken's worst films, "Whore" may be the exception, there is something to admire, with so little to admire in this, is this actually Ken's worst film?
