I still can't quite believe I am reviewing a blu-ray of someone who is universally condemned as 'the worst film-maker of all time'. Hopefully this release goes some way to correcting that opinion, as first up we have Nightbirds, a film that has remained locked away unseen for years, and thanks to the generosity of Nicholas Winding Refn we finally get to see it. Well if your only experience of Milligan is The Ghastly Ones/Blood Rites (from the video nasty list) then prepare for a surprise, as we get a well acted, well shot little drama, focusing on the destructive relationship of two young 'alives' in swinging London. This would be great as a double-bill with Duffer Duffer / Moon Over the Alley [Blu-ray + DVD and feels tonally similar. It comes with the first Flipside commentary, with the wonderful Stephen Thrower interviewing Berwick Kaler, and although its not the most information-packed extra, it is great to listen to at least once. The other feature is The Body Beneath, much more Milligan-esque in execution, although well acted at times. This nonsense tale about vampires in 'the graveyards of London' is best watched with a bellyful of wine, as is a definite midnight movie experience! Moments of bizarre gore and the last 15 mins seeming to have been lifted from The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda make this a real...experience! Do note the picture quality is much worse, but for me that simply adds to the charm. Hopefully BFI will release the other three UK based Milligan films to delight us with, they really deserve a high-def makeover.
