This review is from: Withnail And I  [DVD] (DVD)
The simplicity of this film, along with superb acting and a wonderful script make this a classic. I can say very little more about this film than other reviewers have already done, but i stress the importance of watching this film, especially if you are British.
The catchphrases (I'm not drunk; I've only had a little ale) resound as relevantly and humourously now as they did then, and of course the idea of the struggling acting is a constant theme and is so well epitomised here.
For the sake of your own humanity and culture I would implore you to watch this film and feast your eyes on a great episode in British film making.
