See this film: Tommy @ the MFA

Take a look at the giant shoes that Elton John wears as the "Local Lad" singing "Pinball Wizard" in the movie version of Tommy (1975), and you get an idea of what a loss the death of director Ken Russell last year was to the movie world. His joyously kitschy and surreal excess nearly upstages the Who's groundbreaking 1969 rock opera.
