The Devils

1971

Ken Russell
Director

Large living Catholic Priest falls afoul of Cardinal Richelieu in Loudun, France in 1634.

Not in the wildest dreams of facebook could manufactured hysteria do so much damage.

Ken Russell brings his usual subtlety to the tale, which, let's face it, is not the Catholic church's finest hour,
An astonishing piece of cinema but definitely not for every taste.
