A TV Classic
25 May 2001 | by rayallenSee all my reviews

Early "Monitor" work by Ken Russell. Shows a particular flair for matching nocturnal music with surprisingly vivid images. It works particularly well in describing the composer's fascination with insects linked to seminal works like the "Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste." A black and white classic.
