PERMISSIVE: When Suzy arrives in London to visit an old school friend, she is unwittingly plunged into the ruthless world of the 'groupie'. Fuelled by sex, drugs and jealousy, her new lifestyle fosters in her a cold, cynical instinct for survival. But tragedy is never far away. With its effective blend of gritty location work, brooding flash-forward devices, and a soundtrack by cult acid folk and progressive rock legends Comus, Forever More (who also star) and Titus Groan, Permissive is a dark British counter-cultural artifact that's shot through with grim authenticity.
THAT KIND OF GIRL: In 1960's London, a beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of an earnest peace-protestor, a dashing young lad and a roguish older man. But fun and freedom turn to shame and despair when she finds that her naivety has put her lovers, and their partners, including the well-meaning Janet (played Linda Marlowe, Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy) at risk. Stylishly shot in crisp black and white, and set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, ''Ban the Bomb'' marches, and evocative London locations, this finely tuned cautionary tale was the directorial debut of Gerry O'Hara (All the Right Noises, The Brute), and is presented in a new transfer from brand-new HD elements.
