THE FLIPSIDE : rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.
When Suzy arrives in London to visit an old friend, she is plunged into the ruthless world of the groupie, where she develops a cold, cynical instinct for survival. Mixing gritty location work, brooding flash-forward devices, and a soundtrack by cult prog rock legends Comus, Forever More and Titus Groan, Permissive is a grimly authentic countercultural experience.
By contrast, Bread - also included on this release - is a light-hearted exploration of the same milieu which features is own bona fide cult British rock bands, Juicy Lucy and Crazy Mabel.
Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition
