Brilliant Film, McDowell at his Best
28 February 2001 | by (Westchester, NY) – See all my reviews

No one's ever heard of this film, and no one will ever visit this page, but this is a film that no longer can be made. The writer, the director, and the star represent a time that is past. John Osborne and Lindsay Anderson are dead, and McDowell, lacking directors of Anderson's and Stanley Kubrick's genius, has never made a film as good since.

The script, taken from Osborne's play, and McDowell's acting are a fountain of champagne.

The story may alienate some people, but the trick is to try to view Jimmy Porter more as a victim than as a victimizer.
