Peter Cook’s mischievous performance fuels this uproarious satire, scripted by members of Monty Python, no less. Armed with little more than a clipboard and a whole lot of chutzpah, the mysterious Michael Rimmer sets on his ascent to prominence, ultimately bluffing his way into 10 Downing Street. A riotous reminder of the power of satire, and one that looks less far-fetched with every passing election.
