||SONG OF THE EARTH|
Mahler film In the Russell opus, this must qualify as a "twilight" piece, the last cinema musician biography and one that mixes the "Lisztomania" and "Tommy" excesses with the restraint of Russell's earlier television bio pics. It hasn't as much to do with the historical Mahler as it should but, as with all Russell, wonderfully enervates the subjet matter and always grabs the eye. The second movement of the 1st Symphony is a special standout, with its Nazi pallbearers, while the encounter with Cosima Wagner (though fun) is Russell slapstick at its most outrageous. Oddly, the passage with the most emotional clout is Alma "burying" her musical talent in deference to her husband. All in all, this film oddity is a must for Russell fans, of course, and of peculiar interest to the uninitiated.
