The Caretaker (DVD + Blu-ray) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Whilst renovating his dilapidated home Aston (Robert Shaw) invites an irritable and devious vagrant (Donald Pleasence) to stay. But, when his ill-tempered brother Mick (Alan Bates) returns, an ominous yet darkly comic power struggle between the trio commences. A play that changed the face of modern theatre and made Harold Pinter's name, The Caretaker remains one of Pinter's most famous works. Featuring original production cast members Pleasence and Bates and sensitively directed by Clive Donner (Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush) and shot by Nicolas Roeg, this study of shared illusion, tragic dispossession and the fraternal bond of unspoken love, combines mesmerising performances and the magic of Pinter's dialogue into a spellbinding film. Special Features: Audio commentary by Alan Bates, Clive Donner and producer Michael Birkett (2002) Introduction by critic and author Michael Billington (2002, 6 mins) On Location with The Caretaker (1962, 5 mins): an extract from the TV series This Week in Britain From Play Into Film (2002, 15 mins): Michael Billington on the making of The Caretaker, using materials donated by Clive Donner to the BFI National Archive Other extras TBC **FIRST PRESSING ONLY** Fully illustrated booklet with new essay by critic author Amy Simmons, writing by Michael Billington and full film credits
