Storyline

Morgan Delt is a failed and irresponsible left-wing artist whose Communist parents own a fish and chips shop in downmarket London. He is also an aggressive and self-admitted dreamer, a fantasist who uses his flights of fancy as refuge from external reality, where his unconventional behavior lands him in a divorce from his wife, Leonie, trouble with the police and, ultimately, incarceration in a lunatic asylum.

Trivia

Vanessa Redgrave's Best Actress Oscar nomination for this movie coincided with sister Lynn Redgrave's similar nomination for Georgy Girl (1966). Such a coincidence had occurred only once before when sisters Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland respectively vied for the Best Actress Oscar for Suspicion (1941) and Hold Back the Dawn (1941).

Morgan: A Suitable Case For Swinging London Froth
15 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The trouble with Morgan is:

a) it is too quick to ingratiate itself with the swinging London scene,

b) it glosses over the dichotomy between Morgan's Communist upbringing and his love for his posh, monied wife from which his madness arises,

c) it fails to note that although the 60s may have been 'fab' for those with the money to enjoy it, it was as drab and hellish as any other decade for those that didn't,

d) it treats mental illness as just another whacky, modish, romantic 60s fad which only groovy artists were privy to.

e) all of the above continuously.

What's good about Morgan:

a) the cast,

b) Karel Reisz's strong direction,

c) Johnny Dankworth's music score,

d) it's funny here and there.

All in all worth seeing for the moment when British cinema truly and guiltily turned its back on the gut-wrenching social realism of Saturday Night Sunday Morning (and more especially This Sporting Life) to face the oncoming nightmare of Confessions of a Window Cleaner arriving less than ten years later.

We never truly recovered the lost ground.
