Caring. Sharing.

This week I watched, for the 6th or 7th time, Ken Russell's Tommy, a mad vision of The Who's equally mad rock opera of the same name. It's fantastic, but in a scary, odd kind of way. It never sits quite right, whether it's because of the freaky cameo from Tina Turner or Ann-Margaret being covered in beans and chocolate. Anyway, I thought that I should share a trailer or something, but I found one better on YouTube and actually found the entire movie (though with Spanish subtitles) for all of you to have a look at.

Now, the sad thing is that watching it illegally means that you miss out on that absolutely stunning commentary with Ken Russell and Mark Kermode. It's great and something that you should seek out. Well don't worry! By a brilliant stroke of luck, I've found that too.

Hope that's given some of you some entertainment.

I found that the other day but was worried that the Spanish subtitles might be too distracting so decided to wait until I found a better version. I do want to see the film though.

Good way to learn how to sing The Who in Spanish. El Qui?

That's a skill that could one day save your life.
