/ 10

Punchy, poetic pic that delves into the epic theme of youthful revolt.

/ 10

The film finally succumbs to its own abstraction with an ending that satisfies neither symbolism nor wish fulfillment.

/ 10

A film of tremendous resonance, coming when it did in 1968 with the force of a grenade.

/ 10

A modern classic in which Anderson minutely captures both the particular ethos of a public school and the general flavour of any structured community.

4.5/5 / 10

If . . . is so good and strong that even those things in the movie that strike me as being first-class mistakes are of more interest than entire movies made by smoothly consistent, lesser directors.
