O Lucky Man! Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Released1973
  • Running time183 minutes
  • DirectorLindsay Anderson

This riotous and darkly comic follow-up to his satirical masterpiece IF…. was Lindsay Anderson’s second collaboration with both cinematographer Miroslav Ondříček and star Malcolm McDowell.

Former teenage revolutionary Mick Travis (McDowell, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE) has learnt to abandon his principles in order to succeed, and is rewarded with a job as a coffee salesman. His picaresque adventures are by turns dreamlike, hilarious, frightening and absurd, taking him everywhere from aristocratic dinner parties to medical labs to sex clubs to prison.

A stellar British cast – including Ralph Richardson, Arthur Lowe, Helen Mirren, Dandy Nichols, Warren Clarke, Graham Crowden and musician Alan Price, who also provided the score – add to the sense of mayhem by playing multiple roles.

Anderson takes us on a visionary odyssey through a Britain ravaged by war, capitalism and post-colonialism, delivering characteristically startling imagery along the way.
