Film | The ruling class

This is a hiiiilarious film. The funniest moments have been jammed into this 8 1/4-minute pastiche - sans spoilers. Brilliant selections, except for the unfortunate voice over:

In the film, Britain's aristocrats, their brutal and reactionary values, and their pervasive influence on society come in for a well-deserved thumping. "The Ruling Class" was directed by Peter Medak. The sensationally subversive script was written by Peter Barnes, based on his equally scintillating original stage play.
