I would like to introduce you to a very special film…
The documentary- an early example of the ‘fly on the wall‘ genre- was directed by John Schlesinger, a born and bred Londoner who died in 2003 aged 77.
Schlesinger’s other works include Billy Liar, Midnight Cowboy and Marathon Man.
Terminus is perhaps most famous for a controversial scene in which a five year old lad called Matthew is led to believe he has become separated from his mummy!
Don’t worry… everything works out ok in the end!
The entire 30 minute film (which is now free from copyright) can be viewed below…enjoy.
