Top Critic

One thing is sure: there has never been a movie musical quite like Tommy, a weird, crazy, wonderfully excessive version of The Who's rock opera.

This 1975 film's inventiveness begins to flag about halfway through, but by then it's a relief. If only Wagner could have lived to see this.

Ken Russell's filmization of Tommy is spectacular in nearly every way.

This is both the movie in which [Russell] is most faithful to the ideas and tone of his material, and one of his very worst films.

It's all fairly excessive and far from subtle, but in this case good taste would have been wildly inappropriate and a fearful drag.

The effect is exhilarating and exhausting.
