IF….

Lindsay Anderson | 1968 | 111 MINS
UK
Anderson’s cinematic magnum opus and one of the most essential films of the 1960s, ‘If….’ was a litmus test of the mores, political landscape and temperament of British society.

In Detail

Malcolm McDowell, in a role he was born to play, is Mick Travis, a rebellious pupil at a public school.

Inspired by writer David Sherwin’s own time at Tonbridge (location filming was done at Anderson’s alma mater, Cheltenham College, and Aldenham School) and drawing heavily from Jean Vigo’s uproarious 1933 short ‘Zéro de Conduit’, the film charts the gradual disintegration of order within the establishment, as Travis and his cohort rebel against the constraints of a regimented life.
