He is the world's greatest film director. His characters, his scenery, his costumes - all are authentic, zestful, artistic, artful.
But nobody knows he is the world's greatest film director. Maybe nobody ever will. For all of his masterpieces are stored in an impregnable canister: the head of the film-maker. Inside his brain, nesting safely, reel upon reel of film, magnificently photographed, brilliantly edited, not a frame of it accessible to the viewing public.
An Unusual Angle is about the making of this great film. It is also the film itself. Here is a blazing epic of stupendous events: four years of an ordinary secondary school. Few would have suspected before that an "ordinary" school could provide the material of rich humour, zany lunacy, and near tragedy.
