A daringly anarchic vision of British society set in a boarding school in the 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 saviour in the vicious games of one-upmanship played by both students and masters. Mixing colour and black and white as audaciously as it mixes fantasy and reality, If…. remains one of cinema’s most unforgettable rebel yells. Winner of Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or in 1969.
