Film Description

Joseph Losey's wholly assured first collaboration with playwright Harold Pinter is a dark and fascinating examination of class, decadence, sex and power. It sees Dirk Bogarde's northern working-class butler gradually assuming the dominant role over his feeble master James Fox. A key 60s British film, maintaining a debauched and decadent air but still invested with the realism and incisive take on human relationships of the British New Wave, it is still one of the most expertly realized portraits of British class warfare ever committed to screen. And for music fans, there's thirty seconds of Davey Graham playing his guitar in a coffee bar too.
