I'll take my Byron and Shelley straight.
'Gothic' can be taken neither seriously nor with a saving pinch of salt.
There's no sleeping tonight
I had forgotten just how plain weird director Ken Russell can be . . .
A weird and visually memorable film that Russell fans will love and others will find interesting and at least slightly more accessible than most of his other films.
Full-tilt Ken Russell biopic that raises all the right questions about the act of creating art and more
Typical Ken Russell weirdness.
Just rewatched this.
What could have been a pretty amazing film, falls a bit flat due to some bad editing.
But I still love it to spite all of it's flaws.
I like the original story and if it were done in a more serious and dramatic way (with a fair amount of light-heartedness) this could have been a briliant film. It was simply too weird for my liking although it was made very well. Good acting.
Crazy-ass movie. Ken Russell is a freak.
The poets Byron and Shelley, along with FRANKENSTEIN author Mary Shelly and other guests, spend a night drinking laudanum and holding a seance to conjure up their worst nightmares. The non-linear horror story gives Ken Russel a chance to do what he does best--produce lurid, phantasmagorical visions (including a woman with eyes in her breasts)--resulting in one of his better films.
