The Magic Christian


Time Out says

An extravagant, undisciplined adaptation of Terry Southern's biting satire on the power of money - the plot is little but a stringing together of various hoaxes and practical jokes perpetrated by an eccentric multi-millionaire (Sellers) on a greedy populace - The Magic Christian is all too clearly representative of the impasse independent mainstream film-making found itself in when given its head by the industry in the '60s. The result is a variety concert of a film in which most of the acts/jokes fall flat.
