Herostratus

Dir. Don Levy

UK 1967 | | 143 mins | Cert 15 | Drama

Cast: Michael Gothard, Gabriella Licudi, Peter Stephens, Antony Paul, Mona Chin

A surreal, visually arresting attack on the mass media in which 1960s icon Michael Gothard (The Devils) plays a man who sells his suicide to TV. Unseen since its limited release in 1967, this audacious, criminally overlooked work by experimental filmmaker Don Levy left a profound mark on the landscape of late 1960s British cinema, with echoes of its visual style evident in the most celebrated work of such notable directors as Stanley Kubrick, Nicolas Roeg and Michael Winner.
