Grab a pint and raise a glass to two intoxicating tales of alcoholic abandon set on the seamy side of British life. A bar in London’s Camden Town morphs into a den of iniquity in THE PUB, a shape-shifting nightmare animated in an expressionistic scrawl by Joseph Pierce. It’s a perfect aperitif to the black-comic bender that is Bruce Robinson’s legendary WITHNAIL AND I, in which a pair of boozy actors leave London for a hilariously misbegotten, alcohol-soaked excursion to the countryside, peppered with the endlessly quotable one-liners that have made the film an enduring cult favorite.
