The theater of the absurd is not interesting in anything over a few minutes long. The Bed Sitting Room is just a weak collection of British boarding school gags and recycled bits from art movements such as Dada and Surrealism. When this movie was brought to the screen the art movements copied were already decades old. Watch Dr. Strangelove, it is a better film in every way, you will be far better off. On a side note what the hell does WILLIAM GAUSLOW's review have to do with anything about this movie. Keep your TCM reviews to film not your crackpot political ideology.
THIS MOVIE PRE DATES MONTY PYTHON
- william gauslow
This anti war comedy pre dates "The Holy Grail" by 6 years. Some scenes look like film cast aside of Holy Grail. It's a comedy about war. What a contradiction. People making a "funny" about the worse thing that could happen to them. Comic activities do keep us cheerful in the face of stupidity, violence and greed. I'd bet Stanley Kubrick saw this movie before making Clockwork Orange.
REPUBLICANS SHOULD WATCH THIS MOVIE
- WILLIAM GAUSLOW
perhaps our right leaning friends would understand life more should one of their favorite ideas come true. since our right leaning friends want another world war, this movie would be a good preppy for their thoughts. remember our right leaning friends love war and never consider the consequences afterwards, cause thats un American. imagine someone suffering after a war, such an un American thought. watch this movie g.o.p. and consider where your idiotic thoughts belong. suck eggs.
My God, I've dropped a brick.
Life in London for the two dozen or so survivors of the nuclear war is pretty inconvenient. But these gritty Brits keep a stiff upper lip and maintain proper protocol to get them through the shortages and ocasional mutation. Richard Lester stands the clash between upper class sensibility, working class defiance and swinging London chic on its ear with this devastating piece of surrealism penned by Spike Milligan and featuring an ensemble of players to kill for. Truly original, undeniably hilarious, and maybe just a little more frightening than you care to contemplate. It's a crime, really, that it remains unreleased to the home audience. Creativity does not come without risk.
