Not a bad film, but I can’t see what made people call it the best film of all. It doesn’t matter that there’s hardly any story (a super-rich guy simply goes through his life indulging his whims), and the main character’s psychology is presented quite convincingly (I could even relate to him at moments). But it begins with a fictitious newsreel the voice-over of which is delivered in such a revolting way that I could hardly concentrate on what it said, thinking more about how nice it would be if the guy’s mouth was made to shut up, preferably by somebody’s fist. After that, as I said, it’s not bad, but much, much too long – to some degree because the actors generally move as if they had arthritis. In fact, I probably only succeeded in seeing it all because I watched it ‘in instalments’.
