| Bizarre film
As a fan of cult and surreal cinema I decided to view this rarely seen film and what a choice it was.

this itself is a bizarre study of desires, want and obsession, which is demonstrated perfectly with narration awkwardly placed making you feel uncomfortable which certainly isn't a bad thing. The film disturbed atmosphere is only comparable to Lynch or Buñuel.

There is no wasted scene all of it is symbolic in a way, either if the film is a reality of a dream or a mix of both, you'll keep on asking yourself that when you're trying to decipher what fantasy/Parallel it is in.

But ultimately the film isn't perfection or a masterwork the last quarter of the film even though it is not a wasted scene (as I mentioned above) it can be quite tedious but I'm guessing that the director was trying to make it longer by including these sets of scenes? I'm not too sure.

A good piece of surreal British cinema.
