The Servant (Joseph Losey, UK 1963) 115 mins M

The Servant's fusion of Losey's sensitivity to spaces and objects with Pinter's stark approach to image and language – seen through cinematographer Douglas Slocombe's magnificent black-and-white photography – initiated a new kind of cinema in the UK, one distinctly more ambitious than the social realism of the Woodfall films. The Servant transformed Bogarde's image, cemented Losey's fruitful partnership with Pinter and launched the cinema careers of James Fox and Sarah Miles (who played Vera). A few years later Fox would play a lost young thug opposite Mick Jagger's reclusive rock star in Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg's Performance (1970), the quintessence of the kind of cinema under discussion here. - Nick James, Sight & Sound, June 2009.
