"The Devils" rocked & "Tommy" didn't...

So uncool it hurts. Ken Russell found his natural avatar in Oliver Reed - bumptious, weirdly camp twats. Put Keith Moon in with them as well come to think of it.

Kreisler:

Ken Russell uncool??

(if I didn't know any better, I'd think this was Paddy Chayefsky checking in)

Give 'Elgar', 'The Music Lovers', 'Women in Love', 'Mahler' and 'The Boy Friend' a look-see . . . then tell me Ken Russell isn't cool.

I dareya.

Not to mention his magnificent biographical films for the BBC.

The man is the coolest of the cool.

I think what Kreisler is saying is that he (Kreisler) is from the UK (or doing a spot-on imitation).

London calling - Ken Russell is not cool, trust me
