Special thanks to Dan Callahan of The House Next Door, Slant Magazine and Bright Lights Film Journal for his many insights – and for the tweak of Atonement to give this film some contemporary relevance (as well as an excuse to show a Keira Knightley sex scene).

Apologies for the murky video quality – it’s taken from a television broadcast recorded on a VHS that Dan has owned since he was a teenager! Perhaps this is cause to petition for a proper Region 1 DVD release…
