Nightbirds 1970 ★★★½

This is a hard one to categorise. Essentially a two-hander between Berwick Kaler and Julie Shaw as Dink and Dee, two penniless young lovers shacked up in a top-floor London bedsit. It's not necessarily a well made film but it still manages to be strangely compelling. Milligan's occasionally clumsy style and love of canted angles adds to the queasy claustrophobia as we spend more and more time in the squalid little flat and we begin to realise that there's something quite toxic at the heart of the relationship.
