    Becomes a creepy yet amusing look at how he tries to take control of the film being made about him.

    The film, like its subject, is a hoot, both shamelessly entertaining and bursting with personality.
  4. A compulsively watchable but repugnant portrait of a selfish eccentric born to privilege.

    A memorable portrait of an unbearable personality.
  6. One of the more entertaining documentaries to come along in some time.

    Tennant had hoped the documentary would serve as an "instrument of revenge" on Mustique's new owners. It's the filmmakers who end up exacting revenge on Tennant, gleefully recording his every splenetic outburst and infantile hissy fit.
  8. Glenconner is such a class-conscious caricature that he doesn't need the filmmakers to do him in; he does a sterling job all by himself.
