O Lucky Man! Review


Excellent
Countless "human pinball" movies (think After Hours) owe a deep debt to O Lucky Man! Complex, fascinating, and even a bit confusing, the film is a sprawling, three-hour adventure that will quite literally have you guessing until the very end.

Britannia Hospital Review


OK
It's hard to imagine a more scattered and absurd film, and Britannia Hospital must be a lot of fun if your mood has been chemically altered. Before the day is up at the kooky Britannia Hospital, there will be a mad scientist who not only creates a synthetic, talking brain but also hacks up Malcolm McDowell with a meat cleaver, there'll be protests, a labor strike, and the Queen of England will be on hand to witness it all. Crazy, and pretty much nonsense in the end. Check out The Kingdom TV series for a similar story done with more flair.
