    Wow, this was incredible. Easily Ken Russell's masterpiece. Reed and Redgrave have never been better, but the entire cast (and crew) is at the top of their game here. It's downright criminal that Warner Bros. (i.e. Alan Horn) is doing everything in their power to prevent the original, uncut version of this from being released (or even screened). Oh, the irony of a film about religious fanaticism and hypocrisy being held hostage by a hypocritical religious fanatic. Sigh... 10 years 6 months ago

    By half way through I was wondering why this wasn’t also tagged as a comedy, there are parts I found genuinely hilarious in a twisted ‘a clockwork orange’ and ‘the favorite’ kind of way. 2 years 6 months ago
