The Ruling Class

This absurdist comedy from the 70s is part musical part lyrical play on words. An elderly lord slips whilst playing at auto-erotic asphyxiation and his family wants their part of the pie. Unfortunately for them his heir is Peter O'Toole who is convinced he is the second coming. This almost 3 hour long comedy may be a bit much for some folks but is worth it for people wanting something with intellectual bite and zing. The Netflix DVD also has a commentary track.
