My favorite film, ever,O Lucky Man! by Lindsay Anderson & Malcolm McDowell (and also with Ralph Richardson, Alan Price, and of course Helen Mirren), is coming out on DVD at last next month! (click the link down below to pre-order it, as I just did)
Here are some scenes from this piece of brilliance too few people know(and from which, along with If.... and Withnail & I, Grant Morrison's been pinching lines from for years). Though at one time, it seemed the most common thing, along with its inferior (but worthy) sequel Brittania Hospital, you found in the video store. Perhaps it was there to capitalize on the popularity on VHS of the very, very different A Clockwork Orange.
When no one can tempt you With heaven or hell You'll be a lucky man! You'd be better by far To be just what you are You can be what you want If you are who you are --Alan Price
"Eternity in the company of Beelzebub, and all of his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me & this pencil." --E. Blackadder, 1789 Questionable
