John Byrum United Kingdom, 1974

Øyvind Rype's rating of the film Inserts

Mixing 70's grit and Sunset Boulevard, this is a strange, black comedy/chamber drama of a former, now washed-up silent film director who in the 1930's still refuses to make the transition to talkies. Smoking cigars and gulping whiskey, he's now doing low budget porn from his own run-down mansion just for the ease of it. Sadly underrated it appears.
