Se (If ..., gb 1968 col e b/n 111') Lindsay Anderson. Con Malcolm McDowell, David Wood, Richard Warwick, Robert Swann, Arthur Lowe. * In una public school inglese (che, come si sa, sono scuole private assai costose), uno degli allievi, Mick Travis (McDowell) e due suoi compagni (Wood e Warwick) si ribellano ai riti e alle ingiustizie e, nel giorno della cereminia di fine anno, sparano su professori e compagni. Diviso in 8 capitoli, pieno di cartelli, di scritte e di immagini simboliche, costruito con la libertà di fantasiose associazioni che era tipica degli anni '60 e nella quale il colore s'alterna con la manocromia, l'Opus n.2 di L. Anderson - Palma d'oro a Cannes - è un film sull' Inghilterra, concentrata nel microcosmo del college, una ricca, confusa e ribollente metafora sul malessere del nostro tempo e sul desiderio di rivolta della gioventù, pervasa da una struggente nostalgia per un mondo diverso. Dopo un avvio descrittivo, tutto il film è, con calcolato progressione, un'alternanza della dimissione realistica con quella fantastica e stricabile tra omosessualità e sadismo, descritto con una lucidità che non esclude la tenerezza. Scritto da David Sherwin. ( )
