After 25 years, I have just seen Being There, currently showing on HBO, for the first time. Perhaps they stirred up some interest with their excellent bio-pic The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. I can’t thank them enough.

This movie seems to have gone totally over the heads of those who only know Sellers as Inspector Clouseau, as it was an absolute flop at the box office, despite a Best Actor Oscar nomination for Sellers, and a Supporting Actor win for Melvyn Douglas. But if you like comedy which is wry and nuanced, as I do, you must see this. I can’t wait until they show it again.
