The Ruling Class

Peter O'Toole's performance here is the archetypal tour de force: a show of such brilliant, brittle energy and actorly resourcefulness that it makes this messy, overlong film seem coherent and sharp. While Peter Barnes's screenplay belabors abstract points about the moral vacuum of wealth, and Peter Medak's direction fumbles thickly with the frequent tonal shifts, O'Toole dances through it all as an aristocratic twit who's come to believe he's Jesus Christ. With Harry Andrews, Arthur Lowe, Alastair Sim, and Coral Browne (1971).
