Original Title:

A Zed and Two Noughts

Peter Greenaway's magnificently ambitious, seriously odd second film matches astonishing visuals to the themes of twinship, natural history, decay, perversity and the qualities of light. Oh, and Jim Davidson.

It remains a beguiling, beautiful experience, exquisitely shot and, if you've never seen Greenaway, this is the place to start appreciating one of Britain's most disgracefully under-appreciated directors.

On a par with anything by David Lynch for sheer surrealistic verve.
