Deep End (Flipside 019) (Dual Format Edition)


Legally unavailable for decades, Jerzy Skolimowski’s 1970  utterly compelling portrait of Britain in a era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return

- +

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the ‘special services’ he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors).

Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in an era of uncertainty makes its return to the screen in a new digital restoration long overdue.

BFI Flipside is dedicated to rediscovering the margins of British film, reclaiming a space for forgotten movies and filmmakers who would otherwise be in danger of disappearing from our screens forever. It is a home for UK cinematic oddities, offering everything from exploitation documentaries to B-movies, countercultural curios and obscure classics, If it's weird, British and forgotten, then it's Flipside.
