Play for Today: Who's Who

Mike Leigh United Kingdom, 1979

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Who's Who

A sneering view of both ends of the English Middle Class from Leigh-on-high that is snobbier than those it attempts to lampoon. The play fails to capture anything approaching critique or nuance and is a series of crude caricatures designed to elicit disdain for apparent pretentiousness. Plain old condescension masquerading as social comment (see High Hopes for a similar eruption of egregiousness).
