If you're a fan of classic and cult British films - from Alfie to Performance, from The Devils to Withnail and I - then this indispensable guide to a previously uncharted, alternative history of British cinema is for you...
In an all-new 40-minute documentary, produced exclusively for the BFI, the UK's most knowledgeable and well-respected cult film critic, Kim Newman, explores such questions as how the director of Help! and Superman II came to make one of the world's greatest, but little-known, black comedies, and lifts the lid on which previously unseen British film features Helen Mirren in her debut role.
Along with a selection of original trailers and short films - including one that is exclusive to this release - this is your passport to the exciting and surprising world of The Flipside

Special Features:

* Carousella (1966, 25 mins): originally banned by the BBFC, this controversial dramatised documentary on the lives of a group of striptease artistes was directed by celebrated Hollywood filmmaker John Irvin (Hamburger Hill, Raw Deal).
* The Spy's Wife directed by Gerry O'Hara this little-seen short film stars the inimitable Tom Bell (The L-Shaped Room, Prime Suspect) and Ann Lynn (Screamtime, Separation) in a modish tale of intrigue and extra marital relations.
* Tomorrow Night in London (c.1969, 5 mins): a vibrant and fast-paced tourist board short extolling the virtues, and fashions, of London's swinging scene. Exclusive to this release.
* BFI Flipside trailer reel.
* Illustrated booklet with essays and film credits.
