Song of Summer is here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMMqkb1WKpg

It is the original in English but also has French subtitles, but these are not too distracting.

The Music Lovers is Ken's film about Tchaikovsky and got him an Oscar nomination.  It stars Glenda Jackson who won her first Oscar.  One of Ken's best films

If you go on to the BBC site they have some of Ken's early documentaries, including Pop Goes the Easel.  It is from 60s television, black and white, but gives an idea of how Ken developed.

The link is here

Let us know what you think.

Which films are you looking for?
It's so hard to me find Ken Russell movies, in fact I have The Devils, Tommy, Women In Love, The Boy Friend, Altered States, Crimes of Passion, Gothic, Valentino, The Lair of the White Worm and Whore. I have only mainstream movies by him, but I really love them. I don't have all the others.

There are two types of censorship on the film.  There is the "rape of Christ" sequence which was removed before the film was released.   Then there is some minor censorship where some short torture sequences were removed- nowadays these do not seem extreme at all.

The version with the torture sequences restored is available.  There is no official release where the censored Christ sequence is restored to the film.    The Devils DVD Special Edition DVD (with the Mark Kermode commentary) includes the sequence as a separate extra, and the original torture sequence is back in the film.  This DVD edition is highly recommended.

There have been some bootleg copies on ebay where the rape sequence has been crudely inserted into the film.  I don't particularly recommend this.

To be honest I am happy seeing the special edition, and glad to see the extras.  And if anyone hasn't seen the film, don't let the discussion of torture put you off.  It is a beautiful film, and the violence is neither exploitative or gory.

You can get it online dubbed into Russian, but unless you speak Russian it won't help you too much.
