Anyone who enjoys a good nunsploitation flick needs to check out his film "The Devils" asap. Altered States and Tommy are also really enjoyable works he directed.
Man, that's a damn shame! Ken Russell had a great, prolific career directing a ton of quality films, although it's funny that out of everything he did, TheDenizen focuses on the nunsploitation.
I was actually thinking of re-watching Tommy too, especially since it I saw as a kid, but it seems even more dazzling and cool watching it now.
Along with the death of Peter Yates early this year, it's been a bad year for a lot of terrific old-school British directors.
