This review is from: Lisztomania [DVD]  (DVD)
This is what Russell is often feted for: total OTT, gratuitous and bawdy film making. But he's good at this style, giving it merit and insight into an historical situation. I didn't realise that "Lisztomania" was a 19thC term for the disproportionate adoration of Franz. It goes beyond merely taking liberties with the persistent use of Nazi associations with Wagner (which also gets tedious), and certainly not one of his best films. Watch "The Devils" which truly explores mania (religious and political) in the city of Loudon.
