The Ruling Class

1972, 154m
"A comedy with tragic relief"...Peter O'Toole

"....  "snail-slow, shrill and gesticulating" ..."sledgehammer satire"..."snarling, overwrought, parochial satire "....most of his praise for O'Toole..."All actors can play insanity; few play it well. ...unfocused gaze, abrupt bursts of frenzied high spirits, sudden depressions. Funny, disturbing, O'Toole finds his way into the workings of madness, revealing the anger and anguish at the source.""....Wikipedia

O'Toole is fun to watch in this wacky comedy film. It becomes redundant during its second half, but it is amusing on the whole.

The final dagger jab is quintessentially black Brit humor..
