'Savage Messiah'
'Savage Messiah'

Warner Archive Week! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Bernard Rose introducing "Savage Messiah."

Ken Russell’s 1972 bio-pic about the fiery french sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (played by Scott Antony) whose brief and bright career positioned him as an important figure in the Cubist movement. There’s nothing cube-like about ravishing co-star Helen Mirren whose long and distinguished career was just beginning to take off. Featuring the venerable Michael Gough as Gaudier-Brzeska’s father and with future director Derek Jarman providing the production design, as he had for the previous The Devils.
