I am watching (!)'WITHNAIL & I' on TV , and was reminded that Bruce Robinson was in 'PRIVATE ROAD', a film I saw on TV (undoubtedly BBC 2) over 30+ years ago, and thought it was truly wonderful, but I have never seen it or anything about it since........ Given the cult status (Definition "Small viewing figures" -Alan Partridge)and wide availability of 'WITHNAIL', what has happened to PRIVATE ROAD......??? At the time I was 16, and identified with the 'Quiet is the new loud/Reject the Rat Race/Back to nature' theme. I remember it as an excellent film, but,sadly, I have been unable to see it again.With endless copies of junk films freely available ,is it not possible that a film of this rarity can see the light of day ? bfi where are you when we need you most?
