Savage messiah ken russell 1972 trailer
Savage Messiah is a 1972 British biographical film of the life of French sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, made by Russ-Arts and distributed by MGM. It was directed and produced by Ken Russell with Harry Benn as associate producer, from a screenplay by Christopher Logue, based on the book Savage Messiah by H. S. Ede. Much of the content of Ede's book came from letters sent between Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and his lover Sophie Brzeska.
The musical score was by Michael Garrett (though music by Claude Debussy, Alexander Scriabin, and Sergei Prokofiev was also used), and the cinematography by Dick Bush. The sets were designed by Derek Jarman.
