Withnail

Last night I stayed up with H to watch Withnail and I. It's generally in most 'top ten' British films. I thought it was good, what can I say. Like so many historical films, it seems as much in the time it was made (the eighties) as in the time it was set (the late sixties): the less publicised bit of the eighties, which was dissolute young fellows in long coats smoking and lying around in scruffy rooms. God I went out with enough of 'em at the time.

I noticed that drug-dealer Danny, inventor of the Camberwell Carrot, was Inspector Frank Morgan from Life on Mars. And he was also '85' (so named from his IQ), the thick security guard in Alien3.
