Savage Messiah: Ken Russell > Savage Messiah: Ken Russell

ARIA on DVD July 1


Unlike Ken's segment in "Women and Men: Stories of Seduction," which I found to be one of the worst, I actually found his segment in "Aria" to be one of the best.



Ten top directors were given free rein to each create a short film interpreting an operatic aria. The result is this highly uneven, nudity laden 1987 film. The directors include Robert Altman, Jean-Luc Goddard, Bruce Beresford, Ken Russell and Nicolas Roeg. The cast includes Theresa Russell, Beverly D'Angelo, Buck Henry, Elizabeth Hurley, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt and Bridget Fonda in her film debut. Released previously on DVD but no longer in distribution. Rated R, 88 minutes, from Lightyear Entertainment. DVD extra: a photo gallery. :D
