A nice tribute to Ken Russell. The one for me will always be Crimes of Passion. A truly sick & twisted film that is all kinds of wrong. It stars Kathleen Turner at the apex of her 80s hotness and Anthony Perkins pulling out all the stops of ticks & mannerisms as the street preacher drawn to her. If you have never seen it, well, track it down. It's an eyeful.
