Britannia Hospital Reviews
Still, once you get past the tangential connection, Britannia Hospital is almsot like a British TV Comedy gone wrong, like a proto-Green Wing, presenting 1980's Thatcherite Britain as a strange, dark place dominated by big business, mindless media and sold-out Trade Unionism.
Leonard Rossiter adds to the TV Sitcom feel, but he is actually very good as an unemotional hospital administrator.
All in all, an oddity worth watching once, if only for its ending involving a labour riot, the Queen, Malcolm McDowell's brain and a supercomputer which quotes Hamlet!
It's good to watch and there are some very sick and funny moments. There are alot of famous actors/actresses too!
Mad Surgeons ,stoned tV makers,angry union bosses no one escapes Andersons venom here as all are as guilty as each other.
A film which given todays political climate harks back to a day when the battlelines were more clearly drawn
Can you imagine Truffaut killing off Antoine Doinel the way Anderson kills off Mick Travis here?
