Film of the month: Withnail and I (1987, UK)
For some reason I'd never seen this dark comedy (I pride myself in seeing all the cult films after all) about two impoverished, out of work actors who go on a massive drunk in the countryside. I've never been a fan of Richard E. Grant but I admit he is absolutely dead on as the ranting, bitter and falling apart Withnail. After I saw this I found out Daniel Day-Lewis turned down the role of Withnail and I'm such a fan of his I'd loved to see his take. But, Grant is so good he couldn't have been much better. This is really English in its humor and quite funny & is February's film of the month.
