Richard E. Grant is the endlessly suave Dennis Bagley, a high-strung advertising executive whose shoulder sprouts an evil, talking boil. The boil speaks only to Bagley, is silent to the rest of the world, and seems to be growing. This caustic satire reunites the talented team behind the cult classic Withnail and I to create a tour de force of verbal jousting and physical comedy.
Bruce Robinson is perhaps best known for having penned the award-winning script to the powerful exposé The Killing Fields (1984), but he is also a former actor and a director. He received training in drama at London’s School of Speech and Drama and made his first screen appearance in Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet (1968). After an undistinguished decade as a thespian, Robinson became an author and screenwriter. He became a director a decade after that with the autobiographical ensemble comedy Whithnail & I (1987), the story of two aspiring actors in 1969. —allmovie guide
