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.
