Lindsay Anderson

A good article in today’s Guardian about the film director Lindsay Anderson. By coincidence, earlier this week I watched if…. again. While I’ve seen it more than once, I suspect that the last time I saw it was probably thirty years ago. I was struck by how well it has stood the test of time. It remains a brilliant, brilliant film.
 
The DVD that I now have of it also has an audio commentary by Malcolm McDowell, which is an excellent bonus. Plus, there is one of Anderson’s early B&W film shorts: Thursday’s Children, which is a tremendously moving (and Oscar-winning) look at the education of deaf children in a special school.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
