A Real Treat
on 9 August 2015
Quite bonkers in places but beautifully filmed with great music, what more could you want? The story means something different to me each time I watch it depending upon what's happening in my life and I think that this is the genius of Pete Townshend. Not only could he do this with his music but he's managed also to produce a film that has the ability to affect everyone/anyone by allowing you to apply it in some way to your every day.
And of course the cast is just magnificent as is Ken Russell's direction, some of my favourite people are in that movie aside from The Who, Eric Clapton the guitar playing preacher, Tina Turner as the Acid Queen doing a performance that only Tina Turner could do and of course Roger Daltrey is just perfect and beautiful in the role of Tommy. If you are of the correct age and haven't seen it yet go ahead and treat yourself I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
