Movie Info

Here's an avant-garde take on the famous Oscar Wilde play, +Salome. In this one Mr. Wilde himself appears in the audience for a production of his own play which is being performed in a London brothel. This version's kind of quirky and kinky, however, as some of the dancers appearing are transvestites. At the conclusion of the famed Seven Veils dance, Herod is a little freaked when the seventh veil falls and he finds the temptress he's been lusting after is a temptor.

Lives and dies on its excesses.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Outlandish, oversized, campy, profane and, finally, strangely moving -- in a way that only a Ken Russell film can be.

Audience Reviews for Salome's Last Dance

½

75% A play within a film, with Russell's signature all over it. Quite humorous. I thought Imogen Millais Scott was great as Salome.
