DVD & Blu-ray review: The Servant (15)
Joseph Losey DVD/ Blu-ray (110mins)
Friday 05 April 2013
Harold Pinter's vicious dissection of class, sex and power still unnerves 50 years on. James Fox is exquisitely louche as the aristocratic Tony who requires a manservant to tend to his needs and Chelsea home. Enter, darkly, Dirk Bogarde's impenetrable, parasitic Hugo (above left with Fox) who very quickly takes control of Tony's feckless world.
This subversive 1963 satire remains disturbing and powerful.
