This review is from: Nothing But the Best [DVD] (DVD)
At last available on DVD - I just loved this movie when it first appeared in cinemas. Saw it a couple of times and then it disappeared. I was so disappointed when it did not get a release on DVD. But now it has a release date at last and I cannot wait to see it again. Denholm Elliott is fantastic in it as is Alan Bates and the script is sharp and fresh.
19/07/14 Watching it right now and it is every bit as good as I remember it. Naturally it is dated but it still works as a satire and black comedy. A witty, sharp script by Frederic Raphael and a fantastic central performance by Alan Bates make it a joy to watch, not forgetting Denholm Elliott playing it to the hilt as a louche wastrel.
