Reel Britannia - a very British podcast about very British movies...with just a hint of professionalism.
Surreal schoolboy shenanigans this week as Scott, Steven and Anthony uncover the very dark side of public school in the sixties.
Lindsay Anderson’s If.... is a daringly anarchic vision of British society, set in a boarding school in late-sixties England. Before Kubrick made his mischief iconic in A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm McDowell made a hell of an impression as the insouciant Mick 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. Mixing color and black and white as audaciously as it mixes fantasy and reality, If…. remains one of cinema’s most unforgettable rebel yells.
"Education in Britain is a nubile Cinderella: sparsely clad and much interfered with."
