Comic Masterpiece
I didn't realize until just recently that Jim Broadbent's satirical masterpiece, A Sense of History, is online.




Mike Leigh directed it, and no doubt added his own touch, but Broadbent, one of the treasures of modern British comedy, wrote and starred. It's as merciless a send up of the WASP sensibility as you can imagine. The whole thing is not quite a half hour and should be passed along.

Part two here.
Part three here.
