Yup, a one-off film - nothing else quite like 'If' has been done since.

I wonder why? :D

It's a very '60s' film.

I.e it's a bit arty farty and doesn't make sense. Not bad though.

Back on again, worth a look if you've not seen it!

On: Film4 (315)

Lindsay Anderson's coruscating classic critique of British society is set in a private school where rebellious pupils led by Mick Travis take revenge against the petty-minded teachers and prefects. A mixture of satire and fantasy, it is one of the outstanding films of the decade that, as well as massively influencing subsequent British film-making, provided a cinematic vision for the disaffected youth of its time.

Director: Lindsay Anderson
