KateSherrod’s review published on Letterboxd :
A perennial favorite Ken Russell spectacle, outlandish, artificial and sensational, depicting an equally bugnuts event from actual history. Oliver Reed at his 1970s peak, and an unforgettable performance
by Vanessa Redgrave, picking bits of scenery out of her teeth at the end of every scene. Decadent AF, but with a sad and serious point about love, religion, and politics don't belong together. An underrated gem.
