The Working Class Goes to Heaven
Watched this the other week and thought it was bonkers. Didn't like it as much as Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion, but the score and the scenes with him at his work station and the bit about his dream and the wall at the end were great.

stop trying to suck up to him he'll never stop hating you he'll never forgive youI don't have much of a handle on Anti-Oedipus and haven't seen any of those films, so you'll have to help me out a bit. The first time I even heard the term was seeing Radiance are doing a box set.
