Himself (as Lord Glenconner)


Lord Glenconner, a Scot, once owned Mustique, a verdant island in the Caribbean. He lives in St. Lucia with wife Lady Anne Coke (herself an Earl's daughter and lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret) and their sole surviving son, Christopher, disabled by an accident. Glenconner visits Mustique, explores old haunts, and prepares an outdoor lunch for the Princess. He gets on with his wife; he's charming, irritable, waspish, a snob. With Margaret, he's unctuous and outrageously ribald. It's up close and personal with this aging, white-robed, old-moneyed European amongst Black workers and nouveau riche Americans. A portrait emerges of the rich against the backdrop of third-world paradise. Written by <>

Amazing documentary
5 May 2002 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

I began to watch this documentary in hopes of seeing the wonderfully idyllic dreams of a visionary become a reality.

What I finally witnessed was one of the most frank documentaries on the character of a man I've yet seen.

I must congratulate the filmmakers who put this together and possessed the guts to portray this arrogant man, warts and spots exposed.

When the Princess finally arrives, I only felt total embarrassment that he subjected her to those Kama-Sutra type images as some kind of pre-breakfast entertainment. It was pathetic.

His self-proclaimed admission to being a "rat" seemed quite appropriate.

Why he is "loved" is an example of why despotic rulers are successful and lauded. Some of these people have no other choice but to follow.

Why he found it necessary to openly insult the filmmakers is unexplainable. I've never cringed so much. Except perhaps during a Pauly Shore movie.

If you want to see a fully honest and candid portrayal of a man, see this. You won't be disappointed.
