The Committee captures the essence of artistic film school movie making. While strange, sometimes confusing, and certainly disturbing, it is nonetheless a brilliant film and one that certainly deserves to be seen more than it is.

It appears from time to time at British film retreats and small art movie houses, but is not available on video as it has never been officially released. It is, nevertheless, somewhat of a "white whale" to fans of Pink Floyd (who contributed much original, unreleased material to the soundtrack). There are apparently bootlegs of it floating around, although in miniscule numbers. None have been seen in public.

If you ever have the chance to see this, and are a fan of art school films, then The Committee is for you!

It should be noted that Pink Floyd also contributed to the soundtrack for "Tonight Lets All Make Love In London", a Peter Whitehead film. (In addition to those mentioned by Phantom Moonhead).
