Beckett on Screen V

Following my post about Beckett's complete works I've decided to occasionally post filmed adaptations of Beckett's work available online, trying to find the best and most loyal adaptation for each work.
Catastrophe

From The Beckett on Film project;
performed by Harold Pinter, Rebecca Pidgeon and John Gielgud;
directed by David Mamet

Not the most loyal of adaptations (a couple of lines are altered and the applause at the end should be far off, not by the assistant) but who can resist Pinter, Gielgud (in his last screen appearance) and Mamet?
