Directed by Lindsay Anderson
After this post I will FINALLY be caught up on this blog. Thankfully, I don't have too much to say about this one, since it is basically Zero for Conduct, which I reviewed already.
Three non conformist boys attend a school that students are brutally abused. They fantasize about killing all their teachers. Needless to say, in this today's climate I found this to be highly disturbing. Also the movie switches between black and white and color because of budgetary restrictions or artistic pretentiousness or something equally ridiculous. This makes for a incoherent and disconcerting movie.
Additionally, I am not a huge Malcolm McDowell fan; in fact, I can't remember a film I have see him in without walking away with a bitter taste in my mouth.
Go for the superior Zero film, if you want to watch a movie about school boy rebellion. Why you would want to, I don't know.
The nude scene of "The Girl" was McDowell's suggestion, since he wanted to see the actress nude.
First film of Malcolm McDowell's.
