An absurdist classic that plays not only as a hilarious who's-who of Britain's great comedy stars of the 60s, but also a scathing and surreal satire of British society and post-apocalyptic paranoia. For all its zany antics, the film also achieves an unexpected sense of grim melancholy, due in large part to its surreal landscapes of destruction and decay. A cult masterpiece that deserves to be better known.
Looks fantastic on blu-ray! A great addition to any cinemaphile's library and would make a great double-feature with Kubrick's Cold War comedy. Even though some of the English humor passed over my head, I still enjoyed Lester's compositions, the acting, and the colorful cinematography. Visit my blog for a full review.
