Withnail and I(1987)

Probably a masterpiece in the vein of Mike Leigh's "Naked" and Alexander Payne's "Sideways", that's raunchy on the surface but uses the aid of a foggy English backdrop and plenty influence of smoke and spirits to showcase two friends' insecurities with each other, themselves, and the way in which the world seems to work around them. And when the movie's funny, which is often, the humor only highlights the film's double-edged sword -- that fame can be a bitch even when you're far from it.
