  1. Brilliant memorial, Helder! It is good to see that you are still here! Ken Russell WAS one of the most talented, inspiring, creative & funny people who has ever lived! He still IS one of the most magnificent spirits to speak & play within the realm of Art!

  2. It is ugly for the BBC reporters & others to label Ken Russell's films as "self-indulgent, extravagant, overblown, controversial, extreme, etc." The worst label the news media used for him is "flamboyant", which is a thinly veiled, anti-gay slur they chose to insult him, whilst avoiding charges of homophobia. It is as if they are calling him "fag" or "poof" then quickly acknowledging that "some" would call him a genius. Congratulations to Ken Russell on a life well-lived! Shame on the news reporters for attacking the Spirit of Beauty from their own crumbling towers of ignorance.
    I like this video on the genius Ken Russell:

  3. Hello, Ken.
    Your namesake (Henry) Kenneth (Alfred) wouldn’t be gobsmacked if he read or heard all those bromidic, pejorative obituaries:

    «— Do you feel filmmakers should always indulge themselves?
    KEN RUSSELL: I don’t quite know what that means. Films are hard to make and I think the word “indulge” really leads one to believe that it’s an easy sort of business and it’s really extremely difficult. You’ll be standing out there in the rain thinking that it’s not an easy job being a film director. But the director is the director and if he feels for whatever reason, perhaps under great delusion, that he wants that scene and he can get away with it even though it might be questionable in terms of taste, then he should be allowed to do it. It’s his movie. But if the committee steps in and says you can’t do that because we’re going to cut it out, then it’s a waste of time.
    (…)
    — How do you feel about being labelled as an iconoclast?
    KEN RUSSELL: Wasn’t Jesus Christ an iconoclast? Oliver Reed used to call me Jesus, so I’m in good company!

    — It’s funny, because when people use the term “iconoclast” they often mean something derogatory, but I think it can sometimes be a positive thing.
    KEN RUSSELL: Well, I don’t believe in sacred cows.»
