Critic Reviews of "Tommy"TIME MagazineMay 06, 2013
One thing is sure: there has never been a movie musical quite like Tommy, a weird, crazy, wonderfully excessive version of The Who's rock opera.Chicago ReaderMay 06, 2013
This 1975 film's inventiveness begins to flag about halfway through, but by then it's a relief. If only Wagner could have lived to see this.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Ken Russell's filmization of Tommy is spectacular in nearly every way.Time OutJune 24, 2006
This is both the movie in which [Russell] is most faithful to the ideas and tone of his material, and one of his very worst films.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
It's all fairly excessive and far from subtle, but in this case good taste would have been wildly inappropriate and a fearful drag.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
The effect is exhilarating and exhausting.Cinema CrazedJanuary 02, 2017
Most definitely a musical gem with the Who and everyone in the cast at their best.TV GuideMay 06, 2013
Fans of the Who beware. Ken Russell applies his rococo outpourings to Pete Townshend's rock opera and botches not only the visuals but the fine score.Film4May 06, 2013
Overlong, over-indulgent, overdone.Film SnobberyApril 15, 2011
An anything-goes phantasmagoria that pushes at the borders of good taste and good sense.Common Sense MediaMarch 15, 2011
Trippy rock opera with drug references and sexual imagery.BrianOrndorf.comAugust 27, 2010
The core essence of Tommy lies in the quivering carriage of Ann-Margret and her heroic personification of Russell's funhouse directorial approach.
