Hugh Grant's finest moment.
I must have seen this film hundreds of times since its first release and, doubtless, I'll watch it hundreds more. Hugh Grant has probably never done anything with the same level of quality since. He shows an incredible range in this film, going from pompous twit to privileged upperclass yahoo, sometimes in the course of one scene. But even with an actor of his stature the film is stolen completely by some of the supporting cast members notably Mark Saban who is simply a joy to watch, especially when he appears in the background of a shot 'doing acting'. The other find of this film is Ted Colman as the 'barman' of Brown's restaurant. Colman is incredible, he's funny, tragic and charismatic in every scene that he appears in. Whatever happened to this guy? I've seen him in this and a couple of low budget Dutch action films and that's all. My copy of Privileged is wearing out, I've viewed it so often. It's a crime there has never been a DVD release in any region, I'm sure the movie's many fans would make it a hit. A two disc set, with commentary from Saban and Colman detailing their very different acting techniques would be very welcome. I strongly recommend anyone to see this film, especially Ted Colman fans. It's original, classy and a total one off.
