Made on a tiny budget of 24,000, Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo's 1975 film Winstanley is a unique achievement in British cinema. Richard Combs considers Kevin Brownlow's frank account of the making of the film, Winstanley, Warts and All, and looks back on Winstanley itself, finding in it both a beautiful reassertion of the purity of silent cinema and a radicalization of film form.
