This is a genuinely hilarious film, but also incredibly weird and insightful. While the practical boil head is awesome, the monologues and dialog are what make this so great, as the main character's conscience battles against his apocalyptic capitalist dreams.
Relentlessly entertaining. Robinson's bizarre film is unlike any other. He shows his talent for satire, dialog, and unpredictable storytelling. Also serves as the perfect showcase for what an energetic and creative actor Richard E. Grant is. I love this film.
A triple ham sandwich by the same team who brought you the overrated (but admittedly funny) Withnail & I. Let´s say the ingredients are tasty but the overall experience leaves a bad taste in your mouth. No laughs, just some half-hearted chuckles here and there. Shame...I had high hopes :-(
Huge disappointment. Satire ? Horror movie ? Comedy? If Bruce Robinson wanted to tell us the detrimental effects of our consumer society, it didn't work out. If he wanted to study the symptoms of a nervous breakdown, it also didn't work out. Better watch again Elia Kazan's THE ARRANGEMENT. This one is already forgotten.
