I laughed a lot. Richard E. Grant is a criminally underrated actor who rarely gets enough quality work, but by god this film lets him shine. He provides admirable range while never being a completely likable person (this might keep some from liking the film). While watching this, I realized how seldom films tackle guilt, and I really like how they used the body horror genre in a comedic way of representing it.
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.
