The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar was made into a film?
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

I wouldn't have thought so. Parkin and I visited and recreated the pose on the very same 'Withnail' steps a couple of years ago. The steps are quite smart now.

The steps in the 'Holmes' photo are either somewhere else, or a film set.

(Only those who know what Withwine is talking about will find this funny.)

Guy Ritchie films pivot almost entirely on their visual stylisation, and in Sherlock Holmes his cup overfloweth. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was a similar ilk. The visual style and camera filter is distinctive and interesting enough to make seeing one of his film's with even a half-decent plot worthwhile. But you get the impression that he labours so much over it that by the time he gets to storyline and character development, they are mere tokens tacked on to the visual style and only paid lipservice. You have to view his films like you view an avant-garde artist's work in a gallery.

Trying to name an avant-garde artist who doesn't have a touch of wank would be about as fruitful as trying to find a 10-minute or greater section of Withnail and I where he isn't on the piss.

I really liked Sherlock Holmes! Good fun, and quite true to the spirit of the books.

I'm not sure about the films, but...

Surely people have seen the Cumberbatch/Freeman version from the Beeb, 'Sherlock'?

It is very, very, very Withnail and I. So much so that it MUST have been a reference point for the actors. Anyone else think so? It's part of why I'm growing to love it.

I like the Cumberbatch one. Also I like his Radio 4 comedy work.
