How to Get Ahead in Advertising
(Britain, 1989) Dark Comedy
Dennis Dimbleby Bagley is a brilliant young advertising executive who
can’t come up with a slogan to sell a revolutionary new pimple cream.
His obsessive worrying affects not only his relationship with his wife,
his friends and his boss, but also his own body – graphically
demonstrated when he grows a large stress-related boil on his shoulder.
But when the boil grows eyes and a mouth and starts talking, Bagley
really begins to think he’s lost his mind. But has he?
