Puget Soundtrack: Fungal Abyss Present The Devils

Recommended

Ken Russell’s notorious adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s The Devils of Loudun features the most accurate tagline of all time: “The Devils is not a film for everyone.” That was especially true for the Catholic Church, which took offense at Russell’s depiction of a 17th-century priest with a healthy sexual appetite (Oliver Reed in his most robust performance) and the sadistic, emotionally stunted nun (a shriveled Vanessa Redgrave) determined to destroy him. As if that isn’t incentive enough to see this orgiastic cri de coeur against crown-sponsored religious hypocrisy, Caravaggio director Derek Jarman designed the sets and Seattle’s Fungal Abyss (the psilocybin-powered alter ego of doom-metal band Lesbian) will be providing the live score for this incendiary installment of the Northwest Film Forum’s Puget Soundtrack.
