Trailers from Hell: Josh Olson on Oddball Brit Cult Comedy 'Withnail and I'

Bad Relationships! week continues at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing Bruce Robinson’s “Withnail and I,” centering on two down-and-out ’60s actors driving each other crazy at a country cottage.

The first film in director Robinson’s (so far)
four-film canon is virtually unknown in the US but a true cult item in Britain. Unclassifiably oddball, it’s an actors’ showcase best enjoyed
with a few drinks. Witty, slyly funny and stolen by Richard E. Grant as the
booze-soaked Withnail.  In 2000, readers
of Total Film voted Withnail and I the third greatest comedy film of all time.
