On 27 May, Indicator presents an eclectic selection of unhinged, genre-twisting films from some of British cinema’s greatest filmmakers, including Jack Gold (The Reckoning), Richard Loncraine (The Missionary) and Nicolas Roeg (Don’t Look Now), and starring some of the world’s most celebrated actors.
First, UK Blu-ray premieres of two unique, uncompromising films: St. John L. Clowes’ lurid crime drama No Orchids for Miss Blandish (1948), which was condemned upon its original release for its depiction of violence, and remains one of British cinema’s most controversial productions; and Jack Gold’s remarkable Who? (1974), starring Elliott Gould (Little Murders) and Trevor Howard (They Made Me a Fugitive) in a one-of-a-kind sci-fi Cold War thriller.
Next, world Blu-ray premieres of two lesser-seen productions from HandMade Films: Richard Loncraine’s gritty heist thriller Bellman and True (1987), which stars Bernard Hill (Boys from the Blackstuff) and Kieran O’Brien (9 Songs); and the psycho-sexual drama Track 29 (1988), directed by the late, great Nicolas Roeg, written by the legendary Dennis Potter (Brimstone and Treacle), and starring Theresa Russell (Bad Timing) and Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) in one of his earliest screen roles.
