comments:
Too sexually alluring to find enough demanding work in British films, Amanda Donohoe has also worked extensively in the US cinema and TV, including an award-winning stint as lesbian Cara Jean Lamb in LA Law (1990-92).

In British films, she was a sexy distraction from the absurdity of Castaway (d. Nicolas Roeg, 1986), a snake goddess in Ken Russell's The Lair of the White Worm (1988) and a lesbian seductress in his The Rainbow (1989).

Lair of the White Worm, The (1988)

Title: Lair of the White Worm, The
Released: 1988
Genre: Horror
Runtime: 93 min
Country: UK
Language: English

Plot Summary: Scottish archaelogist Angus Flint discovers an odd skull amid the ruins of a convent which he is excavating. Shortly thereafter, Lady Sylvia Marsh returns to Temple House, a nearby mansion, far earlier than expected. At a party in the village, Angus meets Lord James D'Ampton, who has just inherited his family's lands, right next to Temple House. Angus learns of the D'Ampton Worm, a huge dragon/snake which an earlier D'Ampton killed by cutting it in half. (There's a pretty catchy rock-folk song that tells the D'Ampton Worm legend.) As people begin disappearing and acting strangely over the next day or two, the skull is stolen from Angus' room, and the watch of a missing person is found in a cavern which was the legendary home of the D'Ampton worm. Angus and James discover that there was an ancient cult which worshiped the worm as a god, and theorize that the creature somehow survived its "destruction", but was trapped inside the cavern. The remainder of the movie shows Angus, James, and Mary Trent attempting to stop Lady Marsh from freeing the creature...

Comments: Best post-Hammer British Horror flick. This film is a glorious mix of gothic horror, gore, eroticism and British charm and is one of the only examples of horror and comedy being mixed effectively. The story is based on Bram Stoker's original novel (which I have not actually read), but I don't know how well it follows it.
Other highlights include an early performence from a guy named Hugh Grant (and is probably his best movie) and the psychedelic hallucinations experienced by some of the cast.
Ken Russell has created a true masterpiece full of chills and laughs that is extremely underrated. All in all, campy horror at it's best.

Rainbow, The (1989)

Title: Rainbow, The
Released: 1989
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 113 min
Country: UK
Language: English

Plot Summary: Ken Russell's rather loose adaptation of the last part of D.H. Lawrence's "The Rainbow" sees impulsive young Ursula coming of age in pastoral England around the time of the Boer War. At school, she is introduced to lovemaking by a bisexual physical education instructress. While experiencing disillusionment in her first career attempt (teaching), she has an affair with a young Army officer, who wants to marry her. Unable to accept a future of domesticity, she breaks with him, and eventually leaves home in search of her destiny.

Comments: This is a beautifully written and filmed story of a young woman who just wants more than her ugly industrial town has to offer. She is influenced by a couple of unconventional older people in her life. I thought it was a sensual portrait of bisexuality and creative freedom

Personal quotes

"I'm an atheist, so it was actually a joy. Spitting on Christ was a great deal of fun. I can't embrace a male god who has persecuted female sexuality throughout the ages. And that persecution still goes on today all over the world."
