Morgan: A Suitable Case for TreatmentDirected byKarel Reisz
35mm. A great example, for the good and the less good, of what was the new British cinema, of the angry young men that Anderson's "If" remains as the epitome without being its best example. For the least good because these films dated immensely above all because there was less investment in form than in fiction and actors performances, and for good because in the present case it's still a fun stimulus to anarchy.
