Allan Arkush on

O Lucky Man!

Released 1973
Distributor Warner Bros.

Lindsay Anderson’s monumentally ambitious musical pastiche plays like a mammoth music video. Themes from Anderson’s previous film, if.. abound in David Sherwin’s audacious screenplay, and the rock soundtrack is tops. There are a number of different versions of this film, none of which the director was ever really satisfied with.
