Going to Bed with Difficulties

Georges Méliès | 1900 | ★★★★
A man attempts to retire for the evening, but finds the act of undressing all but impossible. With each piece of clothing he removes, another magically appears to replace it, leaving him evermore irate. Brilliant editing and a wonderfully timed central performance combine to quite magical effect, in Méliès's hugely entertaining madcap farce.
