O Lucky Man!

Malcolm McDowell stars in this twisted tale of a man’s rise to the top (and down again) by UK Free Cinema legend Lindsay Anderson.

"McDowell plays Mick, a principled young man who travels the country, encountering corruption everywhere, from genetic engineering to gunrunning. Mick soon joins in with the capitalist fun, before falling foul of the crooked system. Chock-full of venom and sour British humour, O Lucky Man! features a brilliant soundtrack from Alan Price (ex-The Animals, he also appears in the film) and menacing imagery from Miroslav Ondříček (Amadeus)."

O Lucky Man! clearly has a number of things on its mind, but as a movie, it is a very mixed bag.
