Ken Russell

1927 - 2011

Ken Russell tried several professions, before choosing to become a film director. He was a still photographer, a dancer and even served in the army, but it was film that was to be Mr. Russell's destiny. He began by making several short films, and those paved the way for his brilliant television films of the sixties that are acclaimed for his attention to detail and opulent visuals. His third feature film Women in Love (1969) was a triumph and he became an internationally known filmmaker. In the 1970s, his talent truly blossomed. Over the next 2 decades, he would direct a succession of remarkable films, most of them contained his trademark flamboyance that critics generally dismiss but many seem to find this engrossing. He will forever be remembered as a controversial and visionary artist with something of a third eye when it comes to making oddball dramas that have captivating images and themes.
