The Servant

Directed by Joseph Losey

Marking the first of three collaborations between director Losey and playwright Harold Pinter, The Servant follows sly and seductive manservant Barrett (Bogarde) as he worms his way in to the affections of foppish aristocrat Tony (Fox). Barrett’s awe-inspiring efficiency cleverly masks his true intentions, ultimately giving way to a suspicious and insidious control where the roles of master and servant are reversed.

Adapted from Robin Maugham’s short story and with stunning black and white photography from cinematographer Douglas Slocombe, this classic of British cinema is presented in a new 4K restoration.
