❉ Enter the mind of Mindhorn…
STUDIOCANAL have recently announced that Mindhorn, the highly acclaimed British comedy co-created by Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh) and Simon Farnaby (Bunny & The Bull, Horrible Histories), will be released on EST from August 28 and on DVD and Blu-Ray from September 4.
Discs include a great mix of extras including; an audio commentary with Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby, a Mindhorn featurette, the Clive Parnevik stunt master-class, in ‘the mind of Mindhorn’, a Richard Thorncroft interview and the music video You Can’t Handcuff the Wind (see below for the full list).
Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show ‘Mindhorn’, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).
Directed by Sean Foley and co-written by Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby, Mindhorn is British comedy at its best. Joining Julian Barratt as Richard Thorncroft / Mindhorn and Simon Farnaby as Clive Parnevik are a stellar line-up of British acting talent, including Essie Davis (The Babadook, Game of Thrones) Russell Tovey (Pride, Being Human), Andrea Riseborough (Bloodline, Birdman) Jessica Barden (Far From The Madding Crowd), Harriet Walter (The Crown, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge, Philomena).
