Little tyrants are funny, tragic and so much worse...
10 March 2018 | by bkernan-76883See all my reviews

This is an interesting film of the stage play. Part Withnail and I, but much darker. It satirizes political movements, yes, but it's also about men. It is quintessentially male to be arrogant and stupid...and dangerous. It makes for a very funny film until...well, watch the film to the end.

Hurt is great. It is fun to see him as a young, active man. The screenplay is well written and tight--a little Tom Stoppard-ish.

I'm glad to have seen it. So compelling, it made me want to write my first IMDB review.
