"There's no such thing as a wrong war. Violence and revolution are the only pure acts."

Helmed by film critic-turned-director Lindsay Anderson, If.... is an acidic assault on the imbalance of power and an experimental ode to revolution. Due to the nature of the movie, the executives at Paramount Pictures hated it and subsequently shelved it when they first received the final product... read more

I was unsure what my expectations were going to be of this film at first because it seems quite a weird film but what draw my attention to If.... was that Stanley Kubrick was fascinated and inspired by Malcolm McDowell's performance which lead to Malcolm's part in A Clockwork Orange. Anyway about If...., I thought this film was just really good that had a lot of hard to watch scenes including some... read more

"09/04/13 - Mostly uninteresting and dull minus a handful of good scenes. The switching between black and white was pointless, distracting and annoying and is a big reason why I couldn't enjoy the movie."

Movies I Saw For the First Time in 2013 (135 movies items)

"(Theater - Marathon) "If...." is a film that I feel I enjoyed quite a bit of, but found myself just not understanding it more often than not. I don't know if it's partly to do with not being an English schoolboy in the late 60s or the film itself not really following a through story line, mixing fantasy and reality and never letting the viewer know which is which. But I certainly can't blame this film for not engaging me totally, because I know that the potential is there, and some people will "
