Critics reviews

Every scene crackles with wit. The late Richard Griffiths is a wistful scene-stealer as Withnail’s gay uncle Monty; and Paul McGann keenly suggests his unnamed narrator still retains a modicum of rationality. But it is Richard E Grant who makes the biggest impression in the title role. Withnail is one of the greatest tragicomic creations in the history of cinema.
