Advertiser is gradually losing his mind throughout the film keeps the others up to nervous breakdown your nervous outbursts and tantrums. The main character is tiring and annoying.

The film does not funny looks labor.

English humor here is no, solid nervous showdown.

I find it difficult to explain the high rating of this movie because it just seems endless, its impossible to watch.

Many times simply disgusting, and rather fit for a horror movie.

Little add to described in the reviews: this and sense of humour, and a daring mockery of the horror of the 80s, and mind-blowing story, and excellent play of Richard Grant, who is particularly good at psychopaths.

Not only agree with pouzitelnosti film about the ambivalence that led the hero to the mental disorder and split personality, on my taste is a satire, vigorous and amazingly beautiful, especially in the final monologue, which is a particularly florid and pretentious nonsense inherent in the object of satire — the ubiquitous cautionary films about globalization and destructiveness of consumer lifestyles.

Aside from the speaker of the boil and the emotions that filled this movie, we will open the amazing the depth of the picture.

From the very first scenes we see accomplished leader and top salesman of his company, a wealthy and respected. Have already have everything you can only dream of. Gorgeous home, collection convertible, its stable, a wife and St. the Path to the top took 15 years.

But then it receives an order to sell the cream of acne, with which is not can handle. Known years work. We need a qualitatively new approach.

On the train home, he hear the dialogue of companions on article the yellow paper. And then understand how can sell the cream of acne spots. He must become a follower of Big Brother, completely eliminating the conscience and morality in their actions. But he was ready to this. And there in the train he decided to do away with their careers and the seller quitting Smoking, as with the symbol of the hypocrisy of Big Brother.

And then the fun begins. Their rejection of the recognition of the reality of it displaces from his personality (consciousness) that part of that corresponds to Big Brother. Begins conversion to the house, removing all false. The average person can be located in this state over the years, but our hero has to keep moving and quick mentality, so repressed side of the personality at once began to psychosomatically (mental clips are often seen in inflammatory processes at the body). Appears the boil. In parallel with a furuncle develops schizophrenia (literally translates to "split mind"). And now 2 halves of the hero. One honest, conscientious, another hypocritical, dishonest.

Director of Bristol told me about how he passed the same crisis. Then he chose to "sell".

And very soon supplanted the person in because of its initial dominance overcame conscientious.

Now Bagley was able to solve the problem of the sale of the cream of acne spots. He was not only able to sell the cream by selling fashion to pimples, but and is able to sell a hydrogen bomb through the sale of the world. Now Bagley was not just the best advertiser, but brilliant.

This art already owned by the city of Bristol. On the audience calls it"birth defect". Rebirth Bagley — no less a triumph and Bristol.

Attempting to escape Julia (wife) is not surprising. Her husband has changed. Now she also will have to change, either for its place will come another corresponding to the new Bagley. Even if you don't come — also not trouble is (at the Bristol it is not).

The film is very real and accurate. Filled with details and in every scene and frame. If You somewhere imagined absurd — revise carefully.

As You believe in the end of the movie Bagley likened rather to the Antichrist or a Saint?

Director obvious answer is not give. We are free to assess the situation based on their own system of values...
