“A stunning debut”
Wonderful review of DISCLOSURE on the Life Else Where radio show (Norman B hosting) @NormanBRadio: Here is an extract: “There’s a beautiful static quality enhanced by the vivid colours … as the conversations continue a complex and unsettling story unfolds. If you are familiar with the brilliant work of the late Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni, especially his masterwork RED DESERT, you will have somewhat of an idea of the carefully calculated direction by Michael Bentham. This is a stunning debut with a cast of marvellous actors. The nuances and the ability to deliver long monologues without a single edit are dazzling … Quite possibly DISCLOSURE is one of the most original and satisfying films I’ve seen since PARASITE.”

“Nothing could be more timely, or disturbing, than Bentham’s incredible Disclosure, a film that makes you want to scream “stop” at several points during the action”, said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass. “Questions about truth, lying, cover-ups, sex and blackmail burst from the screen, while we the viewer attempt to take sides and place blame. We are so proud to add this stunning and controversial film to the BGP line-up.”
