This black comedy needs to be seen in the right state of mind. And that state of mind is high. And you'll need more than one joint, it's a long movie. Unfortunately I wasn't on any mind altering drugs when I watched the movie (the box really should come with a warning). It was made in the early 70's, in that experimental phase, where pushing the boundaries was the most important thing. The pl... read more

"I decided to watch this film in honor of the great Peter O'Toole who had just recently passed away. Dear lord. If anyone had told me that this was a film where O'Toole plays a noble earl who thinks he's Jesus Christ AND Jack the Ripper, I would have watched this years ago. Basically, it plays off as a madcap critique of the noble classes (I think?) through a series of really strange moments, led by O'Toole who plays a comically unstable rich man. From what I've heard, this is possibly his most"

Incredible Movies That Should Be WAY More Famous (52 movies items)

" This movie is a side splitter, just wayyy too funny for words. The best satire on religion and class society ever made, in my not so humble opinion. Peter O'Toole, I love you! "

Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films PART 9 (50 movies items)

"Peter O'Toole earned himself a Best Actor Oscar nomination thinking he's Jesus Christ in this social commentary filled dark comedy from unappreciated Hungarian director, Peter Medak. "

"8.3. Erittäin hauska elokuva, jossa Peter O'Toolen esittämä Jack perii kartanon, arvonimen ja hirveän omaisuuden. Hänen tapauksessaan ongelmana on vain se, että hän luulee olevansa Jumala. Tästä revitään sitten paljon todella härskiä ja loukkaavaa huumoria, joka samalla sanoo jotain aristokraattien sisäsiittoisuudesta ja perillisestä vallasta ihmisille, joille se ei sovi. Kun Jackille uskotellaan, ettei hän ole Jumala, päättää hän olla Jack the Ripper ja sitten alkaakin i"
