It's so sad that he didn't receive the real recognition he deserved later in life. Even more overlooked was his ability as an occultist.
Even with low budgets and being filmed in his private studio/home, his later work was vibrant, and had the Ken Russell essence but was brilliantly pure, there was no one to mess around with his later films.
I hope The Devils is released in all its glory, un-cut and restored. Instead of the pathetic, butchered, upcoming 2012 release.
