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

" Date: 8/5/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: I have to admit that one of the reasons why I wanted to check out this movie is because of the poster artwork by Ralph Steadman (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). I also knew about this movie for years and I never saw it until now. After watching it on the Criterion Channel for the first time, I loved it. Withnail & I is a very funny and clever comedy in my opinion. The movie is hilarious from start to finish thanks to the wonderf"

"Ensin pieni pohjustus. Tässä on viimeisten vuosien aikana allekirjoittaneella alkanut alkoholi maistumaan vähän turhankin paljon. Näinpä tuli tuossa uutenavuotena mieleeni mielestäni melko nerokas idea: korkki kiinni määrittelemättömäksi ajaksi, ja aiheen analysointia sillä samalla harrastuksella jonka olen osaltaan lisääntyneen alkoholinkäytön myötä laiminlyönyt. Elikkäs, kokosin listan alkoholismiaiheisista leffoista ja alan niitä nyt käymään lävitse. Muistakin aiheis"
