Brand New 4K Master! When the Dark Side of the Mind Is Opened, Can It Ever Be Closed Again? A government scientist commits suicide while clutching a briefcase full of cash, and the police accuse him of being a Communist spy. But when his friend Dr. Henry Longman (Dirk Boarded, Accident, Modesty Blaise) suspects that the death may have been the result of brainwashing, he decides to prove his theory by subjecting himself to sensory deprivation.

Mary Urea (Where Eagles Dare) and Wendy Craig (The Servant) co-star this classic 1963 sci-fi thriller directed by Basil Deaden (Dead of Night, The Man Who Haunted Himself) that went on to influence Ken Russell’s mind-bending Altered States.

If you like off-beat black-and-white films of this era, it's really worthwhile.
BUT if you are also buying this for the audio commentary about the FILM, by Howard Berger and Nathaniel Thompson, forget it. At 20.00 in they are still rambling on about British directors, Dearden, okay relevant but
for so long? and Hitchcock, and Ealing , and.. yet all the while a crucial part of the film, i.e. the early sensory deprivation experiments are being shown and these film critics are still enjoying themselves showing off besting each other about British film directors.
Kino should have stepped in and reminded the two critics they were doing an audio commentary for the FILM and to do it and elucidate the viewers on this complex film.

And Wendy Craig as a femme-fatale. Who would have thought it.
