£15 for under an hour. That can wait.

It is a short film, but it's got a good reputation and has long been mooted to get a release ( I believe Redemption originally had it on their books ).
There is also another short film plus interviews included here. Personally I'm delighted it has become part of the BFI Flipside range. Day one purchase for me.

No Dem, I haven't seen it, but I have read positive reviews from those few who have seen it! It sounds like a real curio and it fits in with classic UK horror. Plus, I've got to keep my Flipside collection complete!

If it's the same film I'm thinking of,yes,back in the eighties on some dodgy tape....don't know if it was ever shown on TV? :confused:

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 18th July 2017 07:50 PM

If it is,then it has quite a raunchy scene in it...And a bird in sussies rolling about.....I remember thinking FFS what if my old man comes in? :lol:

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 24th July 2017 07:41 PM

I picked up Orchard End Murder today.
I don't think it's the same thing I'm thinking of.

However,it premiers in the old bd player shortly......;)

I'd love to know what you think of it. :)

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 25th July 2017 07:21 PM

A great way to spend 50 minutes mate.I loved it.Beautifully shot and tremendously acted.It looks like a Pete Walker film due to the DOP being Pete Jessop.
Just a pity it wasn't another 20 mins long.

It's part of HMV'S 2 for £25-so for £12.50,it's worth every penny.:nod:

does anyone know if this is a reissue (new transfer?) of Privilege from the BFI as it has different artwork?

Paul@TheOverlook 8th September 2017 06:05 PM

It's the same but has both discs - precious the DVD and BD were release separately.

Demdike@Cult Labs 8th September 2017 06:08 PM

It has a Flipside release as well Paul.

After the horrible shock of seeing a certain 88 Films release
That is nicer ahem

Mojo 8th September 2017 06:31 PM

As far as I'm aware, it is a reissue of the dual format Flipside release, albeit with a different cover featuring original poster artwork.

Justin101 8th September 2017 07:23 PM

The Flipside release was out of print for a while and BFI said they were going to re-issue it, but then all of a sudden the Flipside ones re-appeared again, so I dunno what's happening.

This is another film languishing in my 'to watch' pile.

Justin101 8th September 2017 07:25 PM

Actually... I sure that when Beat Girl, Espresso Bongo and Symptoms came out BFI said that would start rebranding the older releases so that they match the new ones. I'm sure that I read that on blurage.

Rob4 8th September 2017 08:58 PM

thanks for the responses guys. its probably my least favourite Watkins movie but needs adding to the collection.

Very glad to see this. I should have picked this up in the DVD-era but for no good reason I never did, so very happy to grab what will surely be the definitive edition. Now hopefully the BFI will give Derek Jarman's Caravaggio the Blu-Ray treatment !

Not strictly relevant to BFI, but they have posted a list of The best Blu-rays (and DVDs) of 2017 as chosen by Sight & Sound contributors.

Susan Foreman 20th February 2018 05:56 PM

"Crafted from the treasure trove that is the BFI National Archive, Queerama travels through a century of gay experience, encompassing persecution and prosecution, injustice, love and desire, identity, secrets, forbidden encounters, sexual liberation and pride. Following numerous festival screenings and a TV broadcast in BBC Fourís Storyville strand, Queerama is released on DVD by the BFI on 26 March.

Weaving in the lyrics and music of John Grant, Goldfrapp, and Hercules and Love Affair, director Daisy Asquith guides us intimately through the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women against the backdrop of a century of incredible change.

Queerama offers a wealth of unknown newsreel and amateur film, alongside the sub-textual references scattered throughout 20th century cinema, the sexual liberation of the early 21st century queer and transgender scene, and the gay parenting and marriage campaigns of recent years."


Extras include:
- Daisy Asquith Q&A (2017, 8 mins): director Daisy Asquith in conversation with the BFIís Simon McCallum
- This Week: Homosexuals (James Butler, 1964, 23 mins)

Review
'The film that captured the nihilism of punk like nothing else' --Guardian

Susan Foreman 20th March 2018 03:53 PM

Released April 2nd: 'Derek Jarman Volume One: 1972 -1986 (5-disc Limited Edition Blu-ray box set)'

Amazon UK - £65.73

"Derek Jarman Volume One: 1972 -1986 is a 2018 set by Derek Jarman, consisting of:

In the Shadow of the Sun (1972-1974)
Sebastiane (1976)
Jubilee (1978)
The Tempest (1979)
The Angelic Conversation (1985)
Caravaggio (1986)


UK: Passed an aggregate 18 uncut

Sebastiane is a 1976 UK romance by Paul Humfress and Derek Jarman.
Starring Leonardo Treviglio, Barney James and Neil Kennedy

Sebastiane in the upcoming Derek Jarman Blu-ray box set from the BFI contains the infamous erection footage (BBFC advice states There is a prolonged sex scene, which includes sight of an erect penis. There is also a scene showing a pagan ritual dance, in which men wearing giant fake phalluses appear to ejaculate white fluid over a male dancer's face and body.)

The erection was never officially censored by the BBFC for the film's original theatrical release. As Jarman later said: We hid it!......We shot the film in Academy [the 4x3 screen ratio of older films], but showed it to the censors with a widescreen mask on the projector. Sebastiane's hard-on was hidden below the frame-line, and they passed the film uncut. When we projected it in 4x3, the hard-on was still there!

The shots were, however, matted out from subsequent video releases and TV showings.

Jubilee is a 1978 UK drama by Derek Jarman.
With Jenny Runacre, Nell Campbell and Toyah Willcox

Cut by the BBFC for 1978 cinema release. Uncut on home video, 18 rated until 2001, and then 15 rated from 2014.

By 2017, the script had to be censored for political correctness for a stage version. In the film, a character named Amyl Nitrate used her opening speech to say Hindley instantly became my hero when she was 15. She also said Hindley was a true artist because she knew how to make her desires a reality, and dismissed those who said her crimes were unimaginable because that showed the poverty of your imagination.

Director Chris Goode, who has adapted the script for its stage premiere, said the lines were in the original film to show how punks deliberately wanted to shock society and smash taboos. He initially resisted requests to take out the reference to Hindley but was 'convinced' to do so by a member of the senior artistic leadership of the Royal Exchange.

Promotional Material

Derek Jarman Volume One: 1972-1986 5-disc Limited Edition Blu-ray box set

Jarman's multi-faceted work is inspirational in its fearlessness, yet remains touchingly personal. The dynamism of these features evokes comparison with the bold romanticism of directors like Ken Russell (an early champion) and Michael Powell, as well as artists Paul Nash and John Piper. But Jarman was also a subversive force in film. Beginning with his psychedelic debut feature, In the Shadow of the Sun (1972-1974), then came the provocative Jubilee (1978), the evocative Shakespeare adaptation The Tempest (1979) and The Angelic Conversation (1985), in which he invoked Elizabethan occultist Dr John Dee and explored alchemical imagery, a subject in which he was well versed. In Sebastiane (1976) and Caravaggio (1986) he revived key gay and homo-erotic figures from the past with edgy and unmistakable style.

Derek Jarman's first six feature films have all been newly scanned at 2K from original film elements and are presented in this lavish box set alongside an exciting array of new and archival extras drawn from Jarman's archive of workbooks and papers held in BFI Special Collections. Newly interviewed exclusively for this box set are some of the people who worked on these films; punk legend Jordan, producer and filmmaker Don Boyd, production designer Christopher Hobbs and artist filmmaker John Scarlett-Davis.

"

Special features breakdown:

DISC ONE: "Sebastiane" and "In the Shadow of the Sun"

"Jazz Calendar" 1968 short (36:20)
This early black and white short featuring the Royal Ballet featured costumes and set designs by Derek Jarman. There is little in terms of camera movement or cuts as it displays an audience point of view here. There are minor dust and specs on the frame though the image is quite clear. Unfortunately the original music which was the ballet score by Richard Rodney Bennet could not be cleared for this release, and instead uses some contemporary jazz music in replacement.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Sebastiane: A Work in Progress" previously unseen alternate edit (61:52)
This incomplete work-in-progress edit of the film features a different score, some different transitions, and in black and white. Temp music is present in some scenes while some scenes have no audio at all. It should be noted that there are no English subtitles to accompany this version, which actually was the original intention Jarman had but eventually was pressed to include English subtitles for the theatrical release.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, in Latin LPCM 1.0 with no subtitles

"The Making of Sebastiane" 1975 featurette (23:10)
This on-location featurette shot by Derek Jarman and Hugh Smith has no audio accompaniment. There are some behind the scenes color footage of the shoot, shots of the vast landscape, casual images of the cast in between takes, rehearsals, some special effects shots, and more.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1

"Sloane Square: A Room of One's Own" 1981 short (9:53)
This 1981 abstract short film directed by Derek Jarman and Guy Ford is a collage of images and scenes cut together, with some elements of stop motion and Stan Brakhage, with music provided by Simon Fisher Turner. There is quite a lot of specs and dust on the frame, but most likely part of the source of the Super 8 film.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"John Scarlett-Davis remembers Sebastiane" 2018 interview (6:38)
The actor was not a main actor but one of the extras in the opening scene, though he gives some fascinating background being cast as an extra, seeing the lavish set and absolutely surprised at what was being shot for the production.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

Image Gallery (9 stills)
Stills from the set, production notes, and the poster for "Sebastiane" are presented.

DISC TWO: "Jubilee"

"A Message from the Temple" 1981 short (5:15)
This short shot on video by industrial group Psychic TV features Derek Jarman, though his voice is actually that of noted tattoo artist Mr. Sebastian. This was originally available on Psychic TV's first video tape compilation "First Transmissions".
in 1080i 60hz AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, in English LPCM 1.0 with no subtitles

"TG: Psychic Rally in Heaven" 1981 short (8:15)
This early music video shot on Super 8 by Derek Jarman features Throbbing Gristle footage reformed in abstraction to accommodate the pulsating music of the band.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, in English LPCM 1.0 with no subtitles

"Pirate Tape" 1983 short (15:21)
In 1982, Psychic TV's Genesis P-orridge and Derek Jarman accompanied famed writer William S. Burroughs across London for a few days period. Much of the footage and interview sessions were cut up mangled, and spliced together to form this short film, with Burroughs echoing "Boy, school showers and swimming" again and again against the music of Psychic TV.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.33:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Toyah Willcox: Being Mad" 2014 interview (7:33)
This interview features the actress discussing how she met Derek Jarman and how she was given the part of Mad. She also discusses the aspects of her character, about the production, and how she looks at the role in retrospect.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Jordan remembers Jubilee" 2018 interview (33:08)
The actress gives her thoughts on the making of the film, including reminiscing about the ballet scene and the fire, the punk movement of the time, and much more. With the low budget of the film, she recalls having to bring her own clothes for the production as well as having to do her own hair and make-up.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Lee Drysdale remembers Jubilee" 2018 interview (16:56)
Writer Lee Drysdale talks about the small production's locations which he shares some interesting anecdotes about breaking and entering in certain places. He certainly talks fast and holds nothing back in this interview.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

Image Gallery (22 stills)
The gallery includes costume designs, stills, and the original film poster for "Jubilee".

DISC THREE: "The Tempest"

"Toyah Willcox on The Tempest" interview (10:24)
In this on stage interview at the BFI Southbank on February 12th 2014, Toyah Willcox talks about how Jarman was adamant on having her play Miranda even though she was not at all into Shakespeare. She discusses also about the sets for the production and her memories of Jarman.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Stormy Weather: The Magic Behind The Tempest" 2016 featurette (18:15)
This featurette has Toyah Willcox and Stuart Hopps interviewed separately as they talk about working at Stoneleigh Abbey, Jarman's intricate notebook, as well as the lavish dance scene in the finale.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"John Scarlett-Davis remembers The Tempest" 2018 interview (21:33)
In this interview, the actor recalls the production and how in comparison to the previous work he did for Jarman was fairly traditional in set-up. He remembers the very interesting looking sets at Stoneleigh Abbey, the sailors gathered for the finale, and the later critical reception of the film.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"Don Boyd remembers The Tempest" 2018 interview (32:50)
The producer recalls his first meeting with Derek Jarman about bringing projects to fruition, and how it was very unusual that Jarman would bring a short 35 page script that would become "The Tempest". Boyd has many stories to tell including the casting changes, the miniscule budget, the critical praise it received in the UK but fairly negative reviews for the American market.
in 1080p AVC MPEG-4, in 1.78:1, in English LPCM 2.0 with no subtitles

"A Meeting of Minds: Christopher Hobbs on collaborating with Derek Jarman" 2018 interview (6:29)

Derek Jarman interviewed by Derek Malcolm (1986, audio only, alternate audio track over the film) (58:28)
In this post screening Q&A, Jarman discusses how he became interested in Caravaggio's work, including homosexuality, incorporating fiction for artistic purposes rather than historic. He also discusses other projects, what he thinks of cinema in general as well as other directors he appreciates. The audio on this is frankly very bad, with muffled sounds, microphones being cut on and off, distortion, and sometimes audio dropouts. After the Q&A finishes, the audio reverts back to the film's accompanying soundtrack.
