Rating: 5/5 -- This is Ken Russell unfiltered -- straight-up and unafraid to go wherever his mind leads him. Absolutely unique. Full Review

Like in every carnival, once we fix our sight in its reality, everything becomes distorted and crumbles, revealing the poor dimension of a film that will not matter much in Ken Russell's career. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- While it may lack narrative sense, this is, without a doubt, one of the most unpredictable and hypnotic viewing experiences you could ever hope to have. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- It's a berserk exercise of demented genius, and on that level (I want to make my praise explicit) it functions and sometimes even works. Most people will probably despise it. Full Review

There's no reason to suggest that Russell was just earning a paycheck on Lisztomania; clearly his full attention was on the giant penis, or the giant penis marble columns, or the giant heavenly penis pedestal. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

The shaggy-maned idol rips into his song -- and the audience screams with excitement. Some ecstatic fans storm the stage, wanting simply to touch him. Some want to bear his child. One adoring woman announces she already has. And outside the hall, a horse-drawn carriage waits to whisk the performer away. Meet Franz Liszt (Roger Daltrey), rock star, circa 1840. And great ready for all the glitter, groupies and gaudy good times of Lisztomania.
