Not to be confused with the Roger Daltrey-Ken Russell biopic-of-sorts from 1975 (pictured, and where has that been hiding since the laserdisc era?), but here's the warmup to my wrapup of 2007, beginning with film and moving on to DVD and theater. I'm not sure when it'll finish, but the newly restored and freshly synchronized clock tower at the Williamsburgh Bank Building across the avenue from us here in Brooklyn tells me that time's a-wasting, what with Oscar soon to codify its nominees from 2007 and the Sundance Film Festival bringing forth the new crop, newly minted DVDs appearing weekly, and the 2007-2008 theater season half over already. So let's hop to it, shall we?
