Poor Tchaikovsky. I know it is against the rules to complain that this or that detail may not be precisely accurate, or that Tchaikovsky may not have been dealt with in the fairest possible manner. I know, because I get letters from graduate students, that I must resolutely examine the film itself or the "film itself" as they put it--and put aside considerations from real life.
What difference does it matter whether Tchaikovsky actually existed as Russell portrays him--as long as Russell has made a good film? Well, I suppose there's something to be said for that point of view, had Russell made a good film and not said it was about Tchaikovsky.

But no; the same malignant attitudinizing that might have been applied decades ago is still at work. Variety opined, "By unduly emphasizing the mad and the perverse in their biopic. The result is a motion picture that is frequently dramatically and visually stunning but more often tedious and grotesque.
Instead of a Russian tragedy, Russell seems more concerned with haunting the viewers' memory with shocking scenes and images. The opportunity to create a memorable and fluid portrait of the composer has been sacrificed for a musical Grand Guignol. In the Cleveland Press , Toni Mastroianni said, "The movies have treated composers notoriously badly but few films have been quite so awful as this pseudo-biography of Tchaikovsky.
Dave Kehr of the Chicago Reader described the film as a "Ken Russell fantasia — musical biography as wet dream " and added, "[it] hangs together more successfully than his other similar efforts, thanks largely to a powerhouse performance by Glenda Jackson, one actress who can hold her own against Russell's excess. TV Guide calls it "a spurious biography of a great composer that is so filled with wretched excesses that one hardly knows where to begin.
Time Out New York calls it "vulgar, excessive, melodramatic and self-indulgent. Chamberlain doesn't quite have the range required in the central role, though his keyboard skills are impressive. Pauline Kael would later say in an interview: "You really feel you should drive a stake through the heart of the man who made it. I mean it is so vile. It is so horrible.
