The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer in June - Artwork added

Digital Classics DVD have announced the UK DVD release of The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer on 25th June 2007 priced at £14.99. Legendary comic Peter Cook stars in the title role as it charts the dangerously ambitious political actions of the titular Michael Rimmer.

The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer takes a subversive look at the road to political success. Through Rimmer, the film lampoons politicians and the suspiciously ambitious. Rimmer manipulates, cheats and murders his way to the top of his profession and with his ‘charisma-heavy’, ‘policy-light’ style of leadership, through relentless opinion polls, referenda and underhand electoral practices, somehow wins the hearts of the nation – at the expense of the country.

Previously unavailable on UK DVD or video, The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer is presented here, digitally restored with bonus features including director's commentary, a picture gallery and a look at the original film poster (single still on the disc).
