“ This is a visually stunning, funny, brilliant, and extravagantly weird film that should best be compared to El Topo, Barbarella, Playtime, and the Cremaster series.
“ But I feel "the Bed Sitting Room" is much more enjoyable than the pretentious, self referential cremaster series.
“it was a boring unfunny amateurish mess back then and it hasn't improved with age.
“ A legacy of a empty room if you will.
“Through the miracle of the BBC, ie a newsreader whose job is to travel to the various locations and read the last available news bulletin via an empty television set we start to uncover the story.
“ Quirky and disjointed, cute and comforting in places, and increasingly demanding of the situation and it's ultimate conclusion.
“ To me, it all became very ponderous after a while.
“ The humor in the film is very dry.
“ If that was indeed the raison d'être for the film, it was completely lost on me and I have no idea what other viewers will make of this strange, dated yet oddly compelling pitch-black farce.
“ For all intense and purposes, the film may as well be dead too as it was blind luck that I caught it.
“ In fact, the first 10 minutes or so of "The Bed Sitting Room" was very enjoyable.
“ All the same, it is fascinating to observe it going about its business at a very particular juncture on the comic timeline.
“ Typically British and typically Milligan-ish, with a stunning visual sense.
“ I would still highly recommend it for anyone searching for dark humor, sort of Monty-Python style.
