Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise back to product details

A British (and better) Death of a Salesman

Off-putting is putting it mildly, as far as the first few minutes of VACUUMING COMPLETELY NUDE IN PARADISE are concerned. But stick with this strange work of "art," for that, I believe, is what this piece of funny/nasty entertainment truly is. Timothy Spall is great, as ever, and so is Michael Begley as his would-be apprentice. There's occasional poetry here, and sadness, some humor, some capitalist-bashing, and some sex (albeit strange--but what else would you expect from Danny Boyle?). As far as I'm concerned, this new work speaks as much to our own age as did Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" to an earlier time. And this one is a LOT shorter, funnier, less obvious--and much more creative and succinct.
