Great stuff for Sunday afternoons with a packet of hobnobs and a vat of tea.....
It needs to be watched several times before you pick up all the clues and nuances - then I watched it several times more in short succession.
One of the really lovely parts of the movie is the music and singing of Jeremy Northam as Ivor Novello! And the wonderful Maggie Smith as an impoverished Countess with some classic put down lines delivered in inimitable style!
Wonderfully evocative and everything I remember about growing up in post war Britain among the remnants of the prewar class structure is there. We all knew people who had been in service pre WWII (partly due to the depression) and there they are! There is the nouveau rich Lord hated by all and not all that far away from today's rich industrialist!
And Stephen Fry - bumbling detective seems out of place - but one suspects that is exactly how he would be in that company, in awe of the upper crust and held in ridicule by the servants for his naivety, the more you see it the more you find it not so out of place as you do at the first sitting!
If you like action thrillers, this is not it!
If you like dialog rich, subtle dilemmas this is certainly one!
10 out of 10!
There are one hundred and one different little plot twists that keep you thinking throughout the movie, and missing just the tiniest snippet can muddle you up. Luckily the movie is involving enough to keep you pinned to your seat.
The portrayal of the Upper/Middle/Lower class boundaries is exemplary and the awkwardness causes you to laugh, especially with the entrance of the middle class inspector; that quite obviously doesn't fit in either Above or Below stairs.
If you are to buy one DVD this month you should make it gosford park, you will watch it again and again and each time discover a little something new.
What makes the movie work for me are two things: that style is brought to life with quite a bit of wicked (but not malicious) humor; and second, some extremely good acting. These two elements are exemplified in the funny, mannered performance of Jeremy Northam as Ivor Novello, singing Novello's popular and ickily sentimental songs (although Her Mother Came, Too is still amusing). I can't think of a performance in the movie that wasn't first rate, including those by the two Americans, Bob Balaban and Ryan Phillippe. Well, maybe Stephen Fry.
Even the heavy-going plot lines, which could easily have sunk into melodrama, are rescued by the performances of Mirren, Atkins, Watson, Bates, etc. And the bit players also were outstanding. I especially liked the chubby young scullery helper. I just hope she didn't get pregnant...and that she always washed her hands before helping out with the carrots.
Altman, for me, has made so many movies of such varying quality that it's hard to figure out where to place him. I wouldn't put this one in the same league as McCabe and Mrs. Miller or Nashville, but I think it fits comfortably along side Cookie's Fortune, another film I like a lot.

Wonderfully quick delivery of Gosford Park, but I found the film itself confusing and un-satisfying.Published 26 days ago by Dorothy F. Harrison
What can one say? Gosford Park is a bit of a cult film [ as, of course, is, on a grander scale, Downton Abbey], but if that's your thing, then outstanding. Read morePublished 1 month ago by I. C. Macpherson
