London: Compton Films, 1966. Original French Pressbook for the 1966 film. Roman Polanski's third film, and second film in English. Compared since its release to Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett in terms of tone and theme, "Cul-de-sac" is a psychological thriller of the first order, exploring themes of horror, frustrated sexuality, and alienation—concepts the director has mined and evolved for decades with great invention.
With a striking illustrated design appropriated from the original poster artwork, with stark photographic images from the film throughout.
Oblong, saddle-stapled, two-color self-wrappers, Near Fine.
Criterion Collection 577.
