Released in 1975, "Lisztomania" remains one of the most outrageous films of a decade that was not lacking in scandals... Emboldened by the triumph of "Tommy" a few months earlier, director Ken Russell followed up with another rock opera, again starring Roger Daltrey. This time, The Who's singer plays Franz Liszt, romantic composer, virtuoso pianist and, if Ken Russell's wild script is to be believed, the first rock star in history! Rick Wakeman (of the band Yes) arranges Liszt and Wagner in a prog-rock style, while Ringo Starr makes an appearance as... the pope. Ken Russell gives free rein to his kitschy and deliberately lewd obsessions, between an oversized penis and an operetta spaceship, not forgetting Wagner as a zombie-vampire-superman, Hitlerian before his time... The (anonymous) designer of the British Quad poster echoes all this Grand Guignol bazaar with a series of cartoon-like vignettes which reflect the film's unbridled pop art aesthetic, while modestly concealing its excesses of dubious and radical taste.
