The Devil gets all the best movies...




































To celebrate the BFI release of Ken Russell’s film The Devils – which I’ve reviewed at length in the current edition of Uncut – I'm posting up some photos from the Daily Telegraph Magazine (issue 350, 9 July 1971), which featured an interview and on-location report by Lee Langley. Until this year I’d only seen the film once - in the early 90s, Channel 4, on a tiny portable black and white TV. Seeing it again in this beautifully restored version, Russell's colour scheme, and the richness of the whole conception, really shine out. And the BFI have excelled themselves with the extras disc, too – behind the scenes footage, film of Peter Maxwell Davies conducting his harrowing score, some rarely seen Ken shorts, etc etc. One of the must-have DVDs of 2012.
