Being ThereBeing There (1980)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) Still holds up as a smart fable. Of course, in reality, a man who doesn't read and only watches TV could never become President of the United States of America, right?!
DVD $25 $18.75
Ruling Class, TheRuling Class, The (1972)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) A savage skewering of the British aristocracy and their waning Empire. Bit long–winded, but good fun.
DenialDenial (2016)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) Fine script and acting.
Anglo Saxon Attitudes (TV Series)Anglo Saxon Attitudes (TV Series) (1992)
3 stars (Good Enough) The satire is thin on the ground until the final episode.
DVD $29.95
ReligulousReligulous (2008)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Perhaps the old Hollywood biblical epic clips are overused here, but Bill still makes a good plug for humorous scepticism. And his mum talks sense too.
DVD $20 $15
Fairytale: A True StoryFairytale: A True Story (1997)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) Comic fantasy take on the notorious Cottingley Fairies.
French Lieutenant's Woman, TheFrench Lieutenant's Woman, The (1981)
4 stars (Very Good) Very meta, very enjoyable.
Seven Percent Solution, The Seven Percent Solution, The (1976)
4 stars (Very Good) Excellent tongue–in–cheek addition to the Sherlock Holmes legend. Great cast.
Ripping Yarns (TV Series)Ripping Yarns (TV Series) (1977-1979)
3 stars (Good Enough) Amiable Pythonesque silliness. Slightly odd–story–out is the touching 'Golden Gordon' (with, it looks like, a brief walk–on by John Cleese).
DVD $25 $18.75
Porgy and BessPorgy and Bess (1993)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Full operatic production using Gershwin's original score.
