Like most fans of the film I know, I didn't see Withnail & I when it first opened. In 1987, at the age of 16, I spent an unhealthy amount of time in our local cinema seeing all manner of whatever was popular... Good Morning Vietnam, RoboCop, Wall Street, Beverly Hills Cop 2, Lethal Weapon, The Untouchables, etc. On the plus side, I saw Full Metal Jacket the weekend it was released. Sadly, the same is also true of Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise. So one can deduce that at this point in my life I hadn't really adopted much in the way of critical faculties, and that my film tastes, such as they were, sat very comfortably in the mainstream. Okay, I saw Radio Days that year, but that's not exactly Sous le soleil de Satan...
