‘Tommy’ Director, Ken Russell, Dies at 84 [VIDEO]

Have you watched The Who's rock opera "Tommy"?

Ken Russell directed the 1975 film and he died Sunday, November 27, at his home in Lymington, England at the age of 84.

While rock fans may remember the English filmmaker for his adaptation of Pete Townshend's rock opera, critics know him for his films that pushed the limits of censorship.

Russell received an Academy Award nomination for Best Director for his 1969 film, "Women in Love," based on the novel by D. H. Lawrence. Glenda Jackson won an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in the movie.

He also directed "Altered States," the 1980 science fiction movie starring William Hurt in his first film role and featured the screen debut of Drew Barrymore.
