Indicator pride themselves on championing great British cinema and, as part of this ethos, 18 March 2019 will see the release of their first restorations. Scanned in 4K from the original negatives, their presentations of The Triple Echo and Immaculate Conception mark a new development in the Indicator range which will ensure that even more unjustly neglected gems will appear on Blu-ray for the first time ever.
March’s selection starts with Anthony Mann’s stylish and gripping spy thriller A Dandy in Aspic (1968), starring Laurence Harvey (Room at the Top, The Manchurian Candidate) and Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby, Secret Ceremony); and John Dexter’s screen adaptation of Leslie Thomas’ notorious The Virgin Soldiers (1969), starring two of British cinema’s biggest stars of the time, Lynn Redgrave (Georgy Girl, The Deadly Affair) and Hywel Bennett (Twisted Nerve, Percy).
Next, Indicator’s first two restorations of 2019, both scanned in 4K from the original negatives: Michael Apted’s uniquely powerful The Triple Echo (1972), starring the great Oliver Reed (The System, The Damned) and Glenda Jackson (Women in Love, Sunday Bloody Sunday); and finally Jamil Dehlavi’s sumptuous and unsettling Immaculate Conception (1992), starring Melissa Leo (21 Grams, The Fighter), James Wilby (Maurice, Gosford Park) and one of India’s most celebrated stars, Shabana Azmi (Ankur, The Chess Players).
Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these collectable limited editions contains an array of new and archival extra features, English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and comes packaged with a limited edition exclusive booklet containing newly commissioned essays, contemporary reviews, and film credits.
