THE RULING CLASS

Peter Medak, UK, 1972, Shout! Factory, Cult

Peter O’Toole (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA) gives a tour-de-force performance as a twisted aristocrat “cured” of believing he’s God — only to become Jack the Ripper incarnate.

Based on Peter Barnes’s irreverent play, this comic indictment of Britain’s class system peeks behind the closed doors of English high society. Insanity, sadistic sarcasm, and black comedy — with just a touch of the Hollywood musical — are all featured in this beloved cult classic directed by Peter Medak (THE CHANGELING, SPECIES.)
