It is good to see Russell get some acknowledgment, as I consider him one of the most underrated directors in films today. Though, actually, I can't come up with a list of 10, because I have
only seen 12 of his films, 8 films , which I liked. They are in the order that I liked them . . .
1. Lair of the White Worm
3. Altered States
4. Women in Love
5. Music Lovers
and 4 of his films which I disliked. And they are in order from least disliked to most disliked . . .
4. Women and Men: Stories of Seduction
3. Salome's Last Dance
1. Billion Dollar Brain
As for "Lair of the White Worm," it is not is best film, he has done better, but it is his most underrated. It is such a multi-layered film, that even his fans tend to underrate it. It has to be seen multiple times to appreciate all that it contains.
