Withnail and I
For Withnail and I, the beauty is in the details: cigarette butts lying in bowls of congealed eggs, fetid bedsheets strewn with drained bottles of anti-freeze, half-chewed sausages floating in tepid grey bathwater. Watch the fun as two unemployed actors escape their squalid Camden Town flat for a debauched weekend in a wet English bog. Richard E. Grant's been reprising his trademark role ever since. I saw this film and wept.
