No director other than Ken Russell (The Devils, Altered States) could have transitioned Pete Townshend’s powerful rock opera to the big screen and, even then, no one could have envisaged that Tommy would be so gloriously over the top. With The Who vocalist Roger Daltrey in the titular role as the ‘deaf, dumb and blind kid’ pinball prodigy, and featuring such unforgettable moments as Elton John in gigantic bovver boots, Ann-Margaret rolling in baked beans, and Tina Turner as the glorious, quivering ‘Acid Queen, Tommy remains an eye-popping, psychedelic masterpiece of rock ‘n’ roll cinema.
