A Triumph of Personal Vision...

"Come on lads, let's get home, the sky's beginning to bruise, night must fall and we shall be forced to camp."

Bruce Robinson's Withnail & I is a doped-out British comedy spun from autobiographical threads about two unemployed actors living in London during 1969. This cult classic is devoid of a real plot and is shot in the simple, relatively dull style of a first-time director stru... read more

Withnail & I was a delightful find. When the film reached the 10 minute mark, I knew what I just saw was just the beginning of what I would be seeing for the next 90 minutes. This is a rare film; It has little or no plot to it and has characters who have a flair for speaking with a poetic-nature and/or in structured sentences which more or less start with the word fuck! The film is about two despe... read more

I don’t know, I just don’t get it.

Withnail & I is a film with a large cult following, but something about it just rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe I just find it hard to laugh off such grossly self-destructive behavior? I will concede that the film does have several merits and things working for it, but I walked away from this feeling more at arm’s length then rushing to embrac... read more

Film Review of Withnail and I (1987)

“Taking place in London, 1969, two idle yet ambitious actors named Withnail and Marwood, forever stuck in their dilapidated Camden Town flat, decide to plan a holiday to the distant English countryside in an effort to flee the boredom, squalor and general frivolity of their uneventful lives.

It's fantastically written, bursting with quotable dialogue, black in humour, and its use of characterization is highly original, such as the eloquent yet eccentric homosexual Uncle Monty, played by the late Richard Griffiths, and Richard E. Grant's great performance as the arrogant, cynical, yet always lovable alcoholic of the stage that is Withnail. Former Dr. Who, Paul McGann, also plays a memorable role as the overly anxious yet intelligent Marwood (for some unexplained reason, McGann's c” read more

Withnail & I

“I don’t know, I just don’t get it.

I will concede that the film does have several merits and things working for it, but I walked away from this feeling more at arm’s length then rushing to embrace it.

I think there’s also something of a generational divide between myself and the original audience for this movie. At the time taking the piss out of boho culture was something new, but in the twenty-plus years since it hasn’t exactly retained the same potency. And I found the characterization of Uncle Monty to be a bit of relic from a past age, a lecherous older gay man making advanc” read more

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The film's highly memorable script ("Scrubbers!") about two would-be, down-and-out actors who escape to the countryside from London, including the tea-room scene in which arrogant drunkard/homosexual Withnail (Richard E. Grant) demands from the proprietor in the already-closed establishment: "We want the finest wines available to humanity, and we want them here, and we want them now!"; also Withnail's description of how to spend the weekend as they approached the pub: "Alright, this is the plan."
