Deep Inside-viewed at a private screening at BFI London. For those who may have difficulty viewing this film the plot is roughly as follows, A group of girlfriends arrive at Fire Island a New York resort for an annual reunion. Millicent played as a magnificent malcontent in the Iago mould by Peggy Steffans engineers discord amongst her venal coterie until they realise her schemes and turn away from her. Sarno's repertory company of the time give committed performances in material that would not have been out of place in Douglas Sirks canon. The result is superior entertainment in any genre overlooked or ignored because of its place in the Grindhouse circuit, the success of Sarno's output amongst the raincoat brigade suggests that they have qualities of discernment they are not generally granted with. The mystery is why Sarno's work went unsung during the cineaste 70's and is only now being discovered by a few aficionados. Seek it out where you can!
