Ubu Roi 1965

Based on Alfredy Jarrry's 1896 play about a greedy, overweight, selfish dude named Pere Ubu. The story follows Ubu on his journey to overthrow the current ruler and become King of Poland. Along the way he betrays many of his followers, taxes the civilians to an unreasonable degree and eventually slaughters everyone. Along his side, is the equally crude but somehow more likable Mere Ubu, who's like a foul mouthed Lady Macbeth.

Bizarre as anything, this is a black and white and very 1960s hip production with big costumes and state of the art (for 1965) TV effects. I can thoroughly recommend it.
