Pink Narcissus: 8.50pm (prompt start, no ads or trailers)
A re-discovered cult classic, James Bidgood's film was painstakingly created over six years, Pink Narcissus imagines a young hustler's journey from innocence to depravity, and features some of the sexiest "trade" of the '60s, as well as multiple cameos by legendary playwright Charles Ludlam.
