Quotes

Bruce Robinson: The reason he's called Withnail is because when I was a little boy I knew this bloke called Jonathan Withnail - N-A-L-L. Cos I can't spell, I called him "nail". And he backed his Aston Martin into a police car coming out of a pub car park, and he was like the coolest guy I'd ever met in my life so consequently that name stayed in my head.

"Do you understand, do you?"
30 December 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is well worth watching if you liked the film. There are some good (and quite funny) interviews with the major actors (No Richard Griffiths! A major letdown, that's why I've subtracted one star), as well as Robinson, the casting director, Robinson's old flatmates and some fairly good examples of student fandom.

Many of the stories are genuinely interesting, although the one about Zefirelli doesn't get a look in.

It also includes some of Robinson's old silent footage of himself and some of the other real life people who inspired the film.

Danny the Dealer gets well covered, and both the inspiration for the character and the guy who plays him (Ralph Brown) are not quite as you might expect.
