If . . .

Director: Lindsay Anderson

Lindsay Anderson’s classic film about repression and revolt in a public school achieves a clear allegorical force without sacrificing a whit of his exploration of an essentially British institution. The impeccable logic of the conclusion is in no way diminished by having been lifted from Jean Vigo’s Zero de conduit, made thirty-five years earlier. If . . . was also a timely filmoshooting began two months before the events of May 1968 in Paris.
U.K., 1968. Colour. 111 mins.
