    This is truly one of the most singular movies of all time, and (IMHO) Ken Russell’s masterpiece. Check the cast!

    GREAT ARTICLE ON IT:

    Russell and Townshend spent a year collaborating on the script, which, incidentally, contains no straight dialog, but consists entirely of songs, images and effects. It was Russell’s chore to give dramatic shape to Townshend’s story of the deaf, dumb and blind Tommy, which had originally sprouted in Townshend’s mind as a consequence of his religious conversion to the philosophy of Meher Baba. The allegory was thus highly personal to Townshend. If the story was confusing or unclear to any part of its original audience, the reason may be that it was not fully fleshed out on the album. To this day, Townshend considers the work a string of singles: some of the numbers, like “Pinball Wizard,” were written before he even had a story of any kind in mind.

    TOMMY-The Movie (or ‘How To Funk-Up Your Mind 1000-Ways-Til-Tomorrow’). I finally caught this film…well, actually, stumbled upon it part-way thru via accident (channel flipping) on SHOWTIME in ’98 (it was the ANN MARGARET-scene), and after waiting my whole life, at the time, to catch it, I was FREAKED!! Yea–it was LIKE that…and STILL IS, 42-years-and-some-change later. Thanks, Rarelust.
