DVD: Deep End (15)
Friday 12 August 2011
A soundtrack by the German experimentalists Can, a cameo from Diana Dors as a sexual predator and a saucy Jane Asher all feature in this British oddity from 1970.
John Moulder-Brown plays a teen who lands a job at the local public baths, working with the more sexually experienced Susan (Asher). She shows him the ropes, as it were. Ooh-er. Despite its many faults – mannered acting and "Confessions of a Public Bath Attendant" clunkiness – this coming-of-age tale has zest and a whiff of danger.
