Deep End (1970)

My favourite film reissue of 2011 is Deep End

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses over his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the ‘special services’ he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors). Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in a era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return to the screen in a new digital restoration with extensive bonus features from BFI Flipside.
