We may have promised you two films this week but we thought David Blyth’s subversive classic Angel Mine deserved an episode all to itself. The story of a young married couple attempting to escape into their fantasies, Angel Mine was branded with an R18 rating upon initial release – along with the amazing warning ‘CONTAINS PUNK CULT MATERIAL’. Indeed!

- Thankfully, Angel Mine is easily available on DVD. Check out NZ Videos for sources.
- For more info on David Blyth check out his official website.
- Circadian Rhythms, Blyth’s first short film, makes a great companion piece to Angel Mine. A tremendously confident work, featuring some great experimental montage. It’s included on the Angel Mine DVD and we’ll discuss it in more depth in our upcoming David Blyth career overview.
