I agree.  Wikipedia has good stuff but it is so unreliable.

Wikipedia.

I don't know if anyone has scanned the various Wikipedia articles about Ken Russell and his films, but some of them either need to be expanded or at the very least balanced out.

For example, Savage Messiah, The Boy Friend, Mahler, Lisztomania, and Whore are essentially a paragraph with very little information other than who's in it.

The entry for 'The Music Lovers' has a whole section devoted to the negative reviews which came out at the time of release. At the same time, 'Valentino' has an entire section devoted just to historical inaccuracies (I don't get it. It IS a Russell film).

That stuff gets on my nerves.
