The Ruling Class

"Whatever it was, I didn't like it." №¢

This was the first Criterion film that I actually disliked. The couple dozen films up to this point were spectacular and my admiration for The Criterion Collection's understanding of good filmmaking knew no bounds.
But the honeymoon ended and it ended with Peter O'Toole. Which is a pity.

Sardonically irreverant bashing of English society in general from religion to homosexuality, servants to the ruling class. I didn't find it particularly funny. But maybe you will.

Favorite Moments: Hmmm. The gardens on the estate were beautiful.
