It's one of the most celebrated British films ever made - but does this Blu-ray do it justice?
Tom Courtenay gives one of the defining performances in British cinema as the titular dreamer in Schlesinger's brilliant 1963 satire. This celebratory hi-def release is a rather more modest success than the film itself, with the monochrome AVC 2.35:1 1080p imagery lacking the sharpness and detailing that you might expect from a high-profile remaster of this type. Also present on the Blu-ray platter is a reasonable batch of extras including various interviews and a look at some early written material by Billy Liar author Keith Waterhouse.
