Bernard Rose's Ken Russell Bio-Pic week launched Monday on Joe Dante's Trailers from Hell site:

Ken Russell’s largely metaphorical take on the life of 19th century Austrian composer Gustav Mahler (Robert Powell) takes place primarily on a single train ride embellished with flashbacks and fantasy sequences. More restrained than expected, it’s stylistically ascetic compared to some of Russell’s more over the top biopics. Oliver Reed has a brief cameo as a train conductor.
