Herostratus (Blu-ray+DVD) BFI
When a young poet Michael Gothard (The Devils, The Valley) hires a marketing company to turn his suicide-by-jumping into a mass-media spectacle, he finds that his subversive intentions are quickly diluted into a reactionary gesture.
Unseen since 1967, this audacious and prescient work left a profound mark on the landscape of late-1960s British cinema, with echoes of its visual style evident in the work of such directors as Stanley Kubrick, Nicolas Roeg and Michael Winner.
