Herostratus (The Flipside)  [Dual Format Edition]
  • Description

    When Max, a young poet (played by the iconic Michael Gothard) hires a marketing company to turn his suicide-by-jumping into a mass-media spectacle, he finds that his subversive intentions are quickly diluted into a reactionary gesture, and his motivations are revealed as a desperate attempt to seek attention through celebrity. Unseen since its limited release in 1967, this audacious and prescient - yet criminally overlooked - work by experimental filmmaker Don Levy left a profound mark on the landscape of late-1960s British cinema, with echoes of its visual style evident in the more celebrated work of such notable directors as Stanley Kubrick, Nicolas Roeg and Michael Winner.

    Special features:

    • Dual Format Edition: includes both the Blu-ray and the DVD of the film and the extras
    • Newly transferred to High Definition from the original negative under the supervision of Don Levy associate Amnon Buchbinder
    • Rare audio interview with Don Levy (1973, 38 mins)
    • Ten Thousand Talents (1960, 24 mins): Levy’s student film, set in Cambridge, featuring the voice of Peter Cook
    • Time Is (1964, 28 mins): Levy’s remarkable documentary
    • Five Films (1967, 8 mins): Levy’s hypnotic experiments in film editing techniques
    • Extensive illustrated booklet with newly commissioned contributions and original documentation
    • Dolby Digital mono audio (320 kbps)
