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.

About Allan Arkush

A record collector and film buff from his early days, Allan Arkush brought his two loves together in directing the cult classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Allan’s day job is directing and executive producing television series like Heroes, The Client List and Crossing Jordan.  He has also directed episodes of Ally McBeal, Moonlighting and many other tv series as well as the mini-series, The Temptations, for which he won an Emmy. He wishes that someone would release his 1997 Showtime movie Elvis Meets Nixon on DVD.
