I liked it, but I felt it got a little needlessly oblique at times. The changes between black-and-white and color seemed utterly random, as did some of the other quirky bits. There were some brilliant parts, and McDowell was fantastic (really the whole cast was quite good), and I'll give the film credit for never being dull. But the ending is pretty stupid, and the "shocking revolutionary nature" of the message is merely quaint today. I'd watch it again, though.

If.... is a truly strange film, that at parts extremely hard to follow, but the ending is so bleak, and so sudden, you are forced to stop and think about what you just witnessed, and after analysis, you realize how unique and different this film was, especially for its time period. It is open to interpretation and yet it seemed to have a very linear story. Very surreal picture, I did not expect it at all when I started the picture, and it left me in a state of shock by the end. McDowell shines.

A somewhat bizarre, slightly surreal, yet entertaining satire based in an English boarding school and covering many aspects of the nonsense that goes on in places like that. McDowell is great. Worth checking out.

The first half hour was pretty dull, but it got better and better from there. Malcolm McDowell is a real treat to watch.

Heralded as a classic, but the story never really takes off until the jarring action-packed finale. One or two good spanking scenes does not equate to a backstory, foreshadowing or character development.
