Chamberlain gives a surprisingly good performance.

Ken Russell's biopic of the legendary composer is distorted and excessive, but it's worth seeing.

It's unashamedly vulgar and, if you switch off critical filters, enormous fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Whole stretches of images seem pushed and pulled along before our eyes by projected desires and anxieties.

Russell did something with this biopic about a composer that no one had done to this degree (and rarely at all): He let the music shape and drive the film itself.

This Ken Russell fantasia-musical biography as wet dream-hangs together more successfully than his other similar efforts, thanks largely to a powerhouse performance by Glenda Jackson, one actress who can hold her own against Russell's excess.
April 30, 2012
The picture all too readily settles for the prototype of Russell's anguished-artist aberrations, with the crassness of his formative BBC biopics magnified into gargantuan flailing.
April 30, 2012
Totally irresponsible as a film about, or inspired by, or parallel to, or bearing a vague resemblance to, Tchaikovsky, his life and times. It is not, however, a complete failure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
