IF… ON GREAT! MOVIES CLASSIC

Friday, August 27th, 2021

Controversial modern classic IF… (Saturday 28th, 9pm) was named the 12th best British film of the 20th century by the British Film Institute and was the subject of much controversy at the time of its release, receiving an X certificate for violence. It is truly a landmark piece of British countercultural
cinema. A satire of British public-school life, it follows a posse of students as they stage a savage insurrection at their boys’ boarding school.


Malcolm McDowell stars as Mick Travis, a non-conformist student, one of the few among the boys’ class. Mitch is in his final year at the school and is unhappy with the school’s unjust customs and traditions, which include beatings from the teachers and humiliating chores the younger boys must take part in as they’re bullied by the older pupils. Mitch wants to do something about it, so he and a group of his peers come together on a parents’ visiting day to rebel. As more students join them, the teachers and visiting parents are in for a nasty surprise.
