Christopher Morahan United Kingdom, 1986

dionysus67's rating of the film Clockwise

Frenetic, as its title suggests, comedy which exploits to the fullest John Cleese's uptight obsessions with discipline and punctuality. If the psychoanalytical interpretation is only hinted at, the rest of the film is rather uninvolving as a satire of the British ethos of punctuality. Since the iconoclasm is toned down the only rewards stem from Cleese's amazing body language and expressions in control of clumsiness.
