    The director's cut of Ken Russell's controversial 1971 masterpiece The Devils was recently given a rare screening at the BFI Southbank. Here I ask why it has still not been released on DVD and discuss the film and it's scandalous history with producer Steve Woolley.

    I'm about to go and interview the controversial and mischevious Danish director Lars Von Trier.

    Never let it be said that there is no freedom of speech on Kermode Uncut: you can be as totally wrong as you like. And in other news, how does a person pronounce the surname "Bowie." Is it possible to be apsolutist about it?
