Withnail & I

Richard E Grant and Paul McGann headline a most welcome reissue of Bruce Robinson's seminal 1987 comedy, playing the eponymous failed actors, whose life of squalor and self-loathing is slowly wearing them down. When the lascivious Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) offers the friends the use of his countryside retreat, they readily accept but the friends are unprepared for the attentions of crazy locals and Monty himself, who has an anecdote and a bon mot for every occasion: "I can never touch meat until it's cooked. As a youth I used to weep in butcher's shops."
