Storyline

Lindsay Anderson ("This Sporting Life," "O Lucky Man!") was an award-winning director, critic, essayist and anarchist. Anderson met future Golden Globe-nominee Malcolm McDowell ("A Clockwork Orange," "The Book of Eli") when he cast him in his first starring role as the rebellious Mick Travis in the movie "If...." Their working relationship and deep friendship would span several decades, and "Never Apologize" is McDowell's celebration of his friend and mentor, the time they spent working together, and the famous circle of people with whom they were surrounded. Combining McDowell's own memories with pieces written by and about Anderson, and with his often hilarious and moving impressions of Anderson and their circle -- including Bette Davis, John Ford, John Gielgud, Lillian Gish, Richard Harris and Laurence Olivier -- McDowell offers a glimpse of the cultural, social and political climate of the period.

Tour de force
11 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The other reviewer describes the film in detail with accuracy so I will dispense with the description. I was mesmerized with McDowell's presence and loving portrait of his prickly friend. It was a tour de force. His impersonations were outstanding. He has great stage presence and this tribute to the prolific talented amazing Lindsay Anderson with warts and all, is so touching. I suppose knowing the British film scene of the era is necessary, not sure if it would be so enlightening if one didn't know the films and actors. His unique anecdotes involving such marvels as Bates, Gielgud, Harris and Roberts were enlightening. The sound footage of Anderson singing during the credits was priceless. I enjoyed this one man's tribute immensely and highly recommend it.
