Synopsis Director Ken Russell's vibrant, hyperactive version of the Who's classic rock opera tells the story of a boy (Roger Daltrey) rendered deaf, dumb, and blind by the sight of his father's murder. His psychedelic journey through a maze of abusive relatives and strange cures eventually leads to enlightenment and sainthood. The film is based on guitarist Pete Townshend's stage opera, and features a star-studded cast that includes Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Elton John, Jack Nicholson, and Tina Turner....Dazzling......TOMMY virtually explodes with excitement on the screen....The performers are extravagantly fine......The Who's rock opera TOMMY was an apt screen subject for director Ken Russell's visual bombast...Theatrical Release: March 19, 1975.[R]edeemed by the performances of Ann-Margret and Oliver Reed, interesting cameos from Elton John and Tina Turner, and a stylish sense of design.[I]t's better enjoyed as a sequence of lurid performances of Who songs...[I]t's still a powerful experience, musically and visually....The music has the ferocity of a Who live performance... -- Grade: B+
