Details

Made the same year as the May 1968 revolution, Lindsay Anderson’s allegorical story depicts another revolution, one lead by pupil Mick Travis at an old established private school in England. Before Kubrick made his mischief iconic in A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm McDowell made a hell of an impression as the insouciant Travis, who, along with his school chums, trumps authority at every turn, finally emerging as a violent savior in the vicious games of one-upmanship played by both students and masters. Screening on 35mm.

Portraying a closeted society of absurd traditions, repressed sexuality, hypocrisy and actions without consequence, If… retains its political potency after fifty years.
