Ken Russell United Kingdom, 1975

Semaj Rose's rating of the film Tommy

This is a hard film to give a score to because it is almost rapturous in how stupid it is. It's a film that I couldn't stop watching because of it's sheer absurdity. Unfortunately it is not funny enough to fall into Neil Breen levels of quality, so instead it ends up more like a horrific car crash that you just can't look away from. Child molestation is played as a tasteless joke among other uncomfortable moments.
