Sounds like an interesting film. Not the one I was thinking of (still can't think of the name itself), but sounds interesting. I liked Oliver Reed in Gladiator. Too bad he died during the filming of it though. I guess he went out like a boss though, the night before.
It's Oliver Reed in Ken Russell's "The Devils". He's a libertine/sexual hedonist Jesuit priest who defends his town against the nobility in France and is later executed for it. It's a good movie, I'd recommend watching it if you ever get a chance.
Oliver Reed is one of my favorite actors, though. He was a baller in all the movies I've seen of his.
