Lindsay Anderson United Kingdom, 1973

Richmond Hill's rating of the film O Lucky Man!

Picaresque fable charting the further progress of ‘Mike Travis’ as he travels up-and-down capitalist society. Somewhat hit and miss, but mainly scoreing on account of bright playing, some perceptive digs and Alan Price’s splendid toe-tapping Greek chorus. Anderson is starting to show signs of the heavy handed satire that would mar Britannia Hospital, but largely puts his pet obsessions to good use here.
