Eat The Rich (1987)

When a waiter loses his job at trendy London restaurant ‘Bastards’, he plots with a band of revolutionaries to put its customers on the menu.

Peter Richardson’s film is more of a student prank than a subversive satire in the tradition of Buñuel’s The Exterminating Angel or Lindsay Anderson’s if…

Of the main performers, Nosher Powell is memorable as a Home Secretary who behaves like one of the Kray twins.

The movie’s main fascination, though, lies in its extraordinary array of cameos – from Paul McCartney and Bill Wyman to Koo Stark and French and Saunders.
