Rating: 2.5/4 -- All of the characters are mad, of course, but that's not the point; this isn't a heavy-handed anti-war parable, but a series of sketches that gradually grow more and more grim. Full Review

Its non-plot frequently makes the 91 minutes seem interminable. Full Review

Apocalyptic or prophetic cinema, whether it is in the form of science fiction or farce, demands more than picturesque sets and costumes and a decent, concerned sensibility. Full Review

The Bed Sitting Room is a film which is going to annoy a number of people, amuse but puzzle a like number, and tickle the hell out of a small but. passionately vociferous group, which includes me. Full Review

One of [Lester's] best efforts, a remarkably sharp and deadly satire. Full Review
Chicago Reader
Feb 8, 2019
A play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus serves as an ideal springboard for an offbeat anti-war film by Richard Lester which, miraculously, manages to convey its grim message with humor. Full Review

Description by

New Wave director Richard Lester joins former members of THE GOON SHOW to create a series of comic sketches about a post-nuclear London: a girl is 17 months pregnant, a father turns into a parrot, a man becomes a chest of drawers and another man--a bed sitting room.
