The Greatest Film Ever Made, 19 April 2004
Well, no DVD release yet, but even on video there's no excuse for not owning this beauty. Of course it's a matter of opinion, but...well, I make no excuses. Lindsay Anderson is a genius. McDowell is remarkable in his lead role...whatever happened, Malc? Peter Jeffrey's Headmaster is a joy. Anyone interested in artistic cinema should make the effort. Failing that, it's also a good yarn. Also reccomended: O Lucky Man, the sequel of sorts. British cinema never had it so good.
