If classic and cult British films - from Alfie to Performance, from The Devils to Withnail and I - are your cup of tea, then this indispensable guide to a previously uncharted, alternative history of British cinema is for you.
In an all-new documentary, produced exclusively for the BFI, the UK's most knowledgeable and well-respected cult film critic, Kim Newman, explores such questions as how the director of Help! and Superman II came to make one of the world's greatest, but little-known, black comedies, and lifts the lid on which perviously unseen British film features Helen Mirren in her debut role.
With a selection of original trailers and short films - including one that's exclusive to this release - this is your passport to the exciting and surprising world of the Flipside. All titles are now available on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time ever, in the BFI Flipside collection.
- Carousella (1966, 25 mins): originally banned by the BBFC, this controversial dramatised documentary on the lives of a group of striptease artistes was directed by celebrated Hollywood filmmaker John Irvin (Hamburger Hill, Raw Deal)
- The Spy's Wife (1972, 27 mins): directed by Gerry O'Hara (All the Right Noises, The Bitch), this little-seen short film stars the inimitable Tom Bell (The L-Shaped Room, Prime Suspect) and Ann Lynn (Screamtime, Separation) in a modish tale of intrigue and extra-marital relations
- Tomorrow Night in London*: a vibrant and fast-paced tourist board short made in the 1960s extolling the virtues, and fashions, of London's swinging scene
- Flipside trailer reel
- Illustrated booklet with essays and film credits
