Tommy

“Tommy, can you hear me?”

An assault on all the senses, this mad rock opera, with music by The Who, and direction by professional cinematic wild man Ken Russell, doesn’t disappoint.

The supporting cast features a medley of music giants, from Elton John and Tina Turner to Eric Clapton and Keith Moon, plus Jack Nicholson bounds by, devilish grin intact.

Does any of it make much sense?

Probably not, but just go with it, as we follow the offbeat path of a deaf, dumb, and blind boy who rises to become a pinball wizard, then a messiah.

It’s something, alright.
