    In order of merit:


    1.If.... (1968) ****
    2.O Lucky Man! (1973) ***1/2
    3.Britannia Hospital (1982) ***



    It seems like the long-rumored SE DVD of IF.... (for which Malcolm McDowell is supposed to have recorded an Audio Commentary a couple of years back!!) has hit some sort of snag and is languishing in DVD limbo[​IMG]! That's not the way to treat one of the greatest British films of all time and a key film of the 1960s....

    Similarly, Criterion and Warners are supposedly working on THIS SPORTING LIFE (1963) and O LUCKY MAN! respectively....

    Anyway, I have Anderson's THE WHITE BUS (1968) and THE WHALES OF AUGUST (1987) on VHS and I will eventually pick up IN CELEBRATION (1975) and BRITANNIA HOSPITAL (1982) on DVD.
