KEN RUSSELL: 1927-2011


Filmmaking legend Ken Russell passed away yesterday after a series of strokes. He was aged 84. 


The prolific director of such well known and controversial classics as The Devils, The Who's Tommy and Altered States, he was a well regarded auteur.


My sympathies to his family and friends.
