A TRIBUTE TO KEN RUSSELL (1927 – 2011)
THE DEVILS
THE DEVILS
1971, Warner Bros., 108 min, UK, Dir: Ken Russell

Director Ken Russell’s adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s The Devils of Loudun remains one of the most disturbingly memorable films of the early 1970s. In 17th-century France, Cardinal Richelieu’s minions use the womanizing of activist priest Urban Grandier (Oliver Reed) as an excuse to investigate his "diabolic possession" of the local nuns, including the demented, hunchbacked Mother Superior Sister Jeanne (an unforgettable Vanessa Redgrave).
