Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen’s visually accomplished, intellectually rigorous Riddles of the Sphinx is one of the most important avant-garde films to have emerged from Britain during the 1970s. Exploring issues of female representation and the place of motherhood within society, the film is composed of a number of discrete sections, many of which are breathtakingly shot as continous circular pans, and features a groundbreaking electronic score by The Soft Machine’s Mike Ratledge. Newly mastered in High Definition, Riddles Of The Sphinx is presented here with a number of essential extras, including a feature-length Laura Mulvey audio commentary, and Mulvey and Wollen's first film collaboration, Penthesilea: Queen Of The Amazons.
