Art is sex. Everything else is propaganda.
In his vibrant biopic of French sculptor Henri Gaudier, Ken Russell finds his perfect mouthpiece. As Gaudier romances the author Sophie Brzeska, the enfant terrible of British cinema echoes the artist's rallying cry against the musty treatment of Art. Cue a sensual Helen Mirren into the fray, and art and sex become indistinguishable. This seldom seen masterpiece simply proves Russell's earthy and rebellious genius. Embrace your inner primitivist and come join the revolution!
