"Right. We're going to stay in fair britannia next week as we look at with nail. And i until. I think this week's co osama jonathan. So sam what's been going on in your world honestly. I am trying to think about what everything i've been working on recently. Hasn't been announced. I think because there's been like a little delay because of quarantine Twenty twenty is that exciting. Were basically living in britannia hospital right now. I don't think i can talk about anything. Recent that i've done Yeah i guess. All i will say is i have a book coming out soon. Hasn't been announced so. I can't really talk about that very much I i'm working on a book about rabid the cronenberg film which i've mentioned before and i also catt an eye and anyone who listens to the show. I'm sure now knows who she is because she is also a regular guest host. She and i have our own. Podcasts called daughters of darkness. And we've started doing video episodes And we should have won. Probably a new one on the incredible spanish slasher movie pieces out by the time this episode goes live. Will you be moving your hands a little bit more. Lots of jazz hands. Excellent ex- meiling. It will be like in the beginning of. Oh lucky man when she tells you she tells the coffee salesman to smile and just pushes his face up. It's going to be like that much prettier. Few smiled true. Whether i was just thinking has said that that to cat. I think maybe he was imagining that. He was saying in the voice of rex. Harrison only was except we're gonna all also be putting marbles in our mouth to work on our elocution and jonathan. How is everything in the great white north. I've got a few.

"Used if. I'm ben wanna with lucky man so i think that wasn't unusual at the time because i guess a lot of big british productions were american. Finance a does seem appropriate. I really it does. But i think it's also something that kind of graded on him that he didn't necessarily want to be connected to hollywood and get the hollywood funding and you definitely see similar. Things happening with ken. Russell i mean you know the sort of legendary warner brothers control over the devils is still a thorn in everyone's side to go back to your question sam. I do have to say that. I count myself very fortunate to have watched all three of these movies but especially a lucky man and if i were to go back to one of these like tomorrow a lucky man is probably the one that i would go back to. I was just so bowled over by it. And i feel like i'm better film watcher for having seen it makes me very happy to hear me too. I wonder how you guys would run them. Because i think for me. I would say oh lucky man if the then britannia hospital which is ready. Just my arm preference something rather than the inherent qualities. Because i think they're all gray i would. I would are lucky man and then if and then each time you hostile mine is the same exact order. Yeah would probably say the same though. I wanna give britannia hospital yet. Another shot just to watch it again. I can't say that it's a bad movie by any stretch is just a very different one and i think it might have been so different that i was kinda thrown by it so i will give it another shot some day. It's very overwhelming. And i agree with the point that jonathan made much earlier. Which is i love britannia hospital. Obviously i did a commentary on it and it's extremely long so you don't sign up to talk that long about a movie that you don't like or i mean i'm sure i know there are film critics. Who do and. I think they're jackasses. But i feel like if an lucky man are perfect films. And they're two of my absolute favorite films so me ranking britanny hospital. Third like i. It's it's not that. I don't love it it's just i don't think yeah. I just don't think it's a masterpiece on the same level. And i think anderson felt the same way. It's kind of how i feel about the python films That i think that if you just hop meaning of live without howdy grad life. Brian.

"Vision. This kind of might in the seventies i think in that context of industrial strife really. Because i think the story that inspired it was from hundred seventy. Four thirty may initiated production. I think about seventy nine something like that. I think they got the deal for it. I think that does deserve a bit of explaning. Because i mean i think when you look at it now i think some of that stuff comes in a little bit suspect away kind of attack the union but i think that relates to that specific context of the seventies wherein for whatever reason that there were a lot of strikes there was a lot of industrial unrest. And this is kind of like before margaret thatcher Destroyed the unions power. So i think that it does belong as much to the seventies i think in it's in its satire us as to the eighties and again probably it was just a little bit out of stat would be that. He was released in jonathan. I don't like this. I don't like that thatcher and reagan were doing the same things both of our countries. And now you've got that Not you but the we've got fucking boris johnson. Then trump. i mean it's just like what the fuck i can't if i wanted to. I couldn't run away to england and escape the troubles because it always feels like whenever shit were doing. You guys doing the same thing Yeah but boris johnson can at least speak in complete sentences. That is true. I mean somebody might write them for him but at least he can read them to your point earlier about the difference between lindsay anderson cinema and ken loach. I could not agree with that more. And it's also like why. I much prefer anderson because this is basically a much larger version of what happens if where it's not just we're going to attack the people who are bad. It's everyone is bad. Everyone must go. But it's on such a big scale here and this one in a way might be the funniest one mean. You have some of these hilarious sequences where they're trying to get the queen in out of the hospital and like they hide her in a coffin but it is very. I think something that if like britannia hospitals one of those films that i really like. And i think we talked about this type of cinema on our jacques revette episode. But it's like are certain films. I love and that. I have a lot to say about on that. Makes me think about a lot of things. But they're really hard to recommend to people and this is definitely one of those but the way that it attacks class systems could appeal to a lot of people watching movies today who are very frustrated about what's about the parallels between now and fatter era. Yesterday i think the critique this made i got a also majol light were compliant cells. I.

"Lucky man was one thousand nine hundred seventy three and it would take a lot of years. Before david sherwin and lindsay anderson would work again together. Same thing with malcolm mcdowell and it wasn't until one thousand nine hundred eighty two that britannia hospital came out. And i have to say i was not familiar with britannia hospital at all which is kind of remarkable looking at the cast of it. When i was a kid i would go out. And i would hunt down movies because i was such a huge star wars fan. I went hunt down movies. that mark. Hamill carrie fisher and harrison. Ford were in. And i was just like oh i need this so somehow i managed to see heroes where i think henry winkler is a warm farmer i managed to see you know force ten from navarine i to see corvette. Some are but i never saw britannia hospital in mark. Hamill listen this. It's a tiny role but he's in this movie and he's highest fuck. He is high throughout almost the entire thing. What a strange jonathan. When did you first see this one. I saw again when i was in. Canada is in about two thousand and thirteen. I think the order. So yeah. I guess this last one i saw and i fell. I still feel now is probably my least favorite of the three steel. The two two of my favorite films. That's not to say that. I i dislike it in any way I think that. I take away for me when i was just graham crowd and i just think the escalation of his character the allegation of him as an actor. I think is is so wonderful. Because he's one of those actors who i guess he in the uk. I mean he was. One of those stool will british actors. That you would see in many tv shows things. But i guess.

"With symbolism of death and rebirth and so there's a lot of sort of symbolism woven in there as well really which i think does give you some kind of point of orientation where i think. It doesn't just feel purely arbitrary. So i think the way that three instances dot same with the church comes in after the nuclear explosion. It does have a certain kind of symbolic logic to it. So i think there is a. There is a kind of structure somehow dieting. We talked a little bit about a clockwork orange. And the other thing that. I don't wanna say it took me out of the movie but i was just very happy to see it was philip. Stone was one of the two people that interrogates him. And of course whenever i see him i think of mr greedy the caretaker from the shining so i was like. Oh okay i was like. He's back from the dead again here. He is torture torture. Little alex i think damaging is about as neighbouring claw. And i totally agree with you that it feels like sort of a nod to clockwork orange but in a way. That's not obvious sir. It doesn't feel repetitive. It feels like a totally different thing. That's happening but can we talk for a minute about the black face. I was just about to say this. Movie's cancelled only cancel. The first movies cancelled too. But i think they're all canceled for different reasons. We'll talk about the drag queen and the third y. Yeah the black face on arthur lowe. At first i was getting ready to be a little offended but at the same time i was just like this is really speaking to colonialism. And this whole idea of what i can only assume is this british educated african dictator. Who is buddy buddy with this other. Ralph richardson character. Sir james burgess as you mentioned and i was like okay. I guess it actually kind of makes narrative sense to take a white guy and put him in black face because it's almost like they have taken certain people from africa and anglicized them so much that they might as well. Just be a white person and black face. I know that sounds a little offensive. But that's the way that. I feel watching this and to hear him talk about just all these awful things like how he almost hanged his brother how they're going to use this chemical called honey to kill all of these people and you've got this german guy running this slide show and i'm just like okay. I think he's a leftover from world war two and he's just so happy this the honey that he's trying to acquire it but i think that is maybe for me one of the main kind of political differences between if and the second to films. There's all this really kind of scathing stuff about british colonialism and the british attempts to remain relevant when they're no longer an imperial world power. And you. I mean you've got a. I'm sure we'll talk about this more in a little bit when we get to britannia hospital but all of that stuff i think is really intentional. And i totally agree with you. He wasn't using black face to be offensive. He was using it to make a point. And i think if you don't know a lot about lindsay anderson's life. I mean he somebody who was born in india and travelled around serving in world war two and i think he spent a lot of time thinking about the effects of imperialism and colonialism which is also partly why. I think this trilogy could resonate with a lot of people. Now who are thinking about those legacies in things like you know you ask politics and stuff like that colonial Of running the business as well because you have imperial coffee. I think there is not referenced. At one point to the fact that taking his coffee from nigeria. And then selling it back to the nigerian. So it's both you know. He's both exploitatation. Countries also commerce as well and it's likely exploitation in two different directions of them. You have that.

"Of shifting into a different kind of will really when the pop group appears so today severi kind of nicely placed elements being the way that the pop group peers about point when he's on the way to london. That's definitely another thing that made me think a little bit of revenge though how he. Sometimes i think he does us in merry go round. Maybe where he sometimes has these like musical interludes. That don't have to do with anything that's happening but here. It definitely feels a lot more grounded because he does wind up meeting up with the musicians and of course there's that wonderful helen mirren character but something that i just wanted to say before we move too far from it i love how is specially in the opening when he selling coffee and i have to wonder if this is something that malcolm mcdowell like must have experienced personally but he has all of these kind of scenes early in the movie that kind of continue to route where women particularly older women are hitting on him and making is at him. And you get the sense that he's aware of that and might be a little ambivalent about it but like use it because it's a way to get ahead and i don't think you see that very often in movies where it's like. A male character is defined by his attractiveness to the opposite sex like usually. It's a young woman. So i just thought it was really interesting. The way both malcolm macdonald lindsay anderson used that in this film and how it kind of connects to some of the gay themes in if in sort of like latent gay themes in the whole trilogy is definitely very attractive to the opposite sex. I did not expect during the coffee tasting seen that it was gonna go that way the other thing i didn't mention is you know you talked about the the journey from north to south. And we've got these tidal cards that are throughout this thing as well which also always appreciate a good title card and just that it is kind of charting his journey as he is going along because yeah like you said it starts off and a normal. He's working in this factories getting trained with these other guys. I love this white hat and the white coat that he's wearing. And just all of these things going on with this and then getting sent on this other guys route and then it just goes fucking crazy at one point and i can't even pinpoint one that is it just starts to get wilder and wilder and wilder. And i don't know if the wildest part of this movie for me might be the hospital stuff which then plays into britannia hospital especially because we've got the same doctor that was so good and so unexpected. It's just so horrific new i think the Sort of sign of of of snotty. Bizarre element is the next club as well. I think that's kind of me to go beyond just kind of standard realism could be could be a real estate thing and i feel the movie also get darker as well as it goes on so i think that's maybe something. I didn't appreciate the first time i saw where it fell. Ready very structured. But now when i looked at it. And i feel that there are two halls. And it's.

"Are back. We're talking about the mick travis trilogy specifically we're talking about a lucky man and i do want to ask you the same question i asked before. Jonathan was the first time you saw a lucky man. Well i on videotape. After seeing f i must admit again. It was similar experience malcolm. I didn't really work as well for me. i think those away. I just found it very orienting on. It seemed the meandering on a bit too much. Like a series of comedy sketches. I think that was You know paulie by reaction to the fact that a lot of the actors minneso- famiglia from sitcoms on tv comedy. I think where he did start to grip. Ready was in the final scenes. I think the with the huddle with the salvation. Aw may did begin to feel. There is something very powerful about this on that again how to similar kind of enlightenment process while i store again and by this point i was living in canada and this may sound verse but in a weird way it almost might be a little bit homesick britain because i think that there is something so british about the sensibility behind this and i think what really i really love. The second time i saw it was just some about dialogue some about a sort of humorous low key bizarre dialogue. The david show in rhode yacht the second time amazing way because in a way it is such a you in film but i already felt very emotionally invested in it. The second time so again completely changed my opinion writing the second time i saw another say i think now is my favorite one of the three. How about you sam. It took me much longer to see a lucky man britannia hospital. I think maybe at the time. I watched if they were just harder for me to get hold of so it was probably a couple of years after that that i watched a lucky man and it really was not what i was expecting. I guess i kind of i would say with anderson's films and this is not true of the way. I approach every new movie. I'm gonna watch. But i try to find out as little as possible and so i think i assumed that it was just a direct will somehow to if like they were going to spin it so that the events were a fantasy and now we have them. You know make a couple years older in college or something so when i saw it i was like what is happening but i love it. I mean i agree with everything. Jonathan said i just. It's one of those movies. That i think is really hard to sell people. Because it's hard to describe what exactly it's about and it's very very long. It doesn't feel at least not to me. Granted you know as we've talked about before. I like six hours. Jacques revette movies. So i'm not a good judge. But because it's so episodic and because malcolm mcdowell so charismatic and the direction is so perfect it doesn't feel like you really get lost in the world and you get very emotionally connected to. What's happening with him. Even though he's such a quirky character i know i. I really love it again. I will watch for me on this one aunt as i'm watching it. There was a moment where i had to pause and get up and like now get more water or something and i was just like what the fuck three hours. There's no way this movie. I had no idea what i putted at. I wondered why the dvd's set that. I bought of this. And as far as i know. This isn't on blu ray anyplace. Please correct me. If i'm wrong but i don't think so. I've got a two disc set and motherfucker. That second disc would not work. I had to go out and get another version of it. Because i try to put it in and it just wouldn't read it so i was sitting on the first half of the movie for awhile and then finally got to see second half and wow i was really taken aback. I was very glad though. Jonathan when you and i were talking via chat on facebook because i kept getting little whiffs of clockwork orange through this movie and it was just like am. I crazy for thing. You're not crazy at all. It's definitely yeah. I think this is. There are d- seem very similar on the with the interrogation where he suspected spy and he's in that kind of device in the chad which evokes aversion.

"I was just like my mouth is on the floor going. Wow okay. i didn't expect that. But i am absolutely loving this part of his story that harold pinter really hated that scene and he tells than they understand this is just like so bizarre instill nobody's ever going to buy this gets I think he's just laid in the film. That i think you know you can act staff that sort of complete light completely unrealistic but i think also symbolically quite accurate sort of moment because i think the issue this idea that you know religion is this thing you keep drawers you just out for in convenient purposes many chevik back in and i think represents the place the chocolate highs you know within this power structure. I think he's the shaking hands as well as just the just the gentility. And a look. The headmaster's line tight the seriously yet. They're so much like not that we shouldn't think about it as its own film but like when you look at the trilogy as a whole there's so many of those great moments where he just likes skewers figures of authority. It's in such an interesting way. Because unlike in something like solo where you have these really distinctive individual characters who are painted a certain way as maybe being you know corrupt or statistic or just evil here. It's like even the sort of qualified well-meaning people in positions of authority it's like they're all complicit in this system that we've been talking about and even if they're not like violent or threatening they are perpetrating. This just like totally toxic system. I think if shows that in the most literal non satirical way because when by the time you get to pretend britannia hospital is just fucking ridiculous. That's one of the things is really great about the way that they show is the headmaster. Because i think he would have been much more conventional just to make these very stuffy.

"Get this. I think quite grounded account of the public school life and you know you get certain characters who seem to follow initially and it's almost like it's docs out kind of film that i think he kind of gradually builds on testicle or the dreamlike elements whereas i think i look man. I think from the beginning. You're already on High plane of reality on. I think pretend you're hospital too. So i think that true that i it somehow as the access point really is the first three. I find it very interesting that this was made in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight folks who have listened to the show that i drone on about nineteen sixty eight all the time and then we did this year so many films from nine hundred sixty nine over the course of twenty twenty this kind of bridges those both of them because it was made in sixty eight and then played in khan and was at april of sixty nine one con. So it's kind of bridges both of those and this is actually being made while the strikes are happening in paris. So this is right. They're kind of like preceding a lot of stuff in. It is no coincidence to me. That as you look around the sets of if you are seeing so many revolutionary images. You're the the only thing that i think was missing. The black panther spent there's like mile and there vietnam and there's just like so many different things happening you can kind of use. The sets is almost like a commentary upon the action that is happening in the sets. Me a while to realize that the to the manning a cat which is quite prominent among the collage images. And it's actually land so And i think it makes a point of showing that when in the sigma firing the little dogs. The gun various pitches. I think you see behind him and it. It's the yelich a younger lennon those collages to a really interesting. Because i think maybe the while the pitches are all. But i think just that idea of collage me very much pot Six days sort of youthful aesthetic really reminds me very much of a playwright. Joe autumn who anderson date direct. Some plays by bit late to to kind of a very iconic figure of the six days and he actually decorated his own. And he's i'm flat in that way with all these kind of technologies different images cold from books and magazines and today that in itself. I think speaks ready to that sensibility. About eragny what is so striking to me about a lot of that context is it's one of those films that remains kind of like relevant or it hasn't aged the same way that maybe britannia hospital has because even if you don't really know any of that like nineteen sixty eight revolutionary contacts or you go into the film and you have no idea that lindsay anderson is this like leftist political figure. They're still so much about it that resonates like washing it right now. It feels weirdly very topical. But the first time i saw it. It made me think of something like columbine like a school shooting basically and so i think it has all of these different possible readings that yes. Of course it's a nineteen sixty eight film and does date itself in a really strong way. But it's like it's almost like that doesn't matter it's you know what i mean. Every i really was to ask about that about the ending. Because i think even when i still in two thousand three i guess this is after columbine but i think even in two thousand three. I think school shootings were not as regular as they are now. Sadly on i guess nineteen sixty eight that i mean that is now ready. I guess not have been something that was happening in the uk on. Also this is sixty eight savage really just before they ira bombings stalled like in.

"Intend that to be a specific reason. In each case you know why is this sequence black and white in color. I think it was more. Just create a kind of distancing effect. Nothing he was really he was ready. Brek ideas so i think is very much just kind of general kind of braxton distancing device raw van beings of specifically meant to indicate dish fantasy. Is this real ally is just to see. I think he's kind of just really meant to just keep you aware you're watching fill and I think there are some really striking facts to that. He produces without. I think one of the scenes auburn really struck me. When i it in two thousand and three was defensing sequence in. Is that great moment. Where i think malcolm dowling. Just bursts bursts through the door with the Saw changes to color about moment. So i think it's also one of those devices that were wealthy striking king. Visually facts like that. It reminded me also of the way that he uses those really strange cuts in lucky man. Where it's almost like an is really hard to describe if you haven't seen the film but the way that a director would often or sometimes end to seen were kind of like to black before switching to the next scene once he does that in a lucky man but it comes at totally random times and it is super brechin. And i think that's maybe what like if i had to pick one thing that i especially love about him as a director. I think he's probably the one who manages to translate wreck in theatrical. You to film better than anyone else there. Times with those cuts to black in a lucky man. And i know that i'm jumping ahead and we'll get there but it does have a purpose. It reminds me punctuation. And then i think about the title of if which is very deliberate in the four dots. After if it's not an alexis it is four dots afterwards. And i always think is that supposed to be the four crusaders but then there's the fifth crusader so it doesn't line up that way. Some guy. I wish it was five dots. That would make more sense. And of course. Different from kipling poem which i think he's a dash and i think that was lindsay amazon's very deliberate idea to use those dogs so young that that possibly is a significant yes. I've never worked that out. But the title i think comes up at the end as well desmond and i think. The same thing happens with britannia hospital. You've got that hundred image of the brain. Sorry i'm jumping ahead a little. But i think that seems to be a technique that he liked bring the title up again after the final image will not only is this. Men's anderson and malcolm mcdowell that we have as a constant we also have david sherwin as a constant through this whole thing to he is the screenwriter co-screenwriter of if the original script was by him and a schoolmate john howlett and then he would go on to work with lindsay anderson on a lucky man and on britannia hospital. So it's like these three pieces. It's not just this two legged device that we have it's he's the third leg of the stool and so he is bringing this stuff to bear as well and he is a interesting dude. I read a lot of his autobiography going. Mad in hollywood. And he is super neurotic and just so many issues in his life that were going on at the same time as these movies were getting made. I'm amazed he got any work done at all. He just has all of these like romance problems and huge rows with his wife and girlfriend and all this cheating and having affairs secretaries and just all of this shit going on and yet he manages to make these screenplays and make them to lindsay anderson's specifications. Because like you said he seems like he is very specific. He knows what he wants and he uses these two terms and these terms just kept coming up through everything that has reading many an epic and there were many is just like. It's silly. don't put that in there. It's just you know we need to have this thing. Be epic and epic was like the thing that he was going and it wasn't just running time even though all lucky man is like three hours long it just it wasn't just you know like big set pieces because some of these smaller things that are happening especially if these are epic to linzie and they're definitely epoch to sure when he lived a lot of the stuff as well as john and. I don't think it's any coincidence. That one of the characters name is johnny and then for a while there was just the other character who is like. Come the mix slash wallace character and eventually they broke him into two pieces. Which i think really works well and so again it kind of fits back to those three legs of the stool where we have now in the three characters who are taking on the world rather than just the the two characters just their ins and outs and it helps balance the film a lot more by having this essentially one protagonist. But it's broken into three pieces with these three guys. I'm not surprised that you're you either are or were nervous to talk about them. Because they're really hard to discuss for people who haven't seen them because so much insanity happens especially in owaki man in britannia hospital like not that. If isn't insane but out of the three. If you can kind of reduce down to a sentence plot description may be with you know semi colon an additional sentence punctuation again. Yes lots of punctuation. It's so hard to describe what it is that he does in his films. Especially this trilogy without somebody experiencing it for themselves. Which i think to me is the mark of a great director or at least an exciting director who's pursuing a really unique vision. I think if is different in the sense. I think the way starts quite realistic is really and it. I think In certain ways. Because you know you.

"Come to the projection booth. i'm your host. Mike white joining me as ms sam degan. I'm so excited to talk about lindsay anderson also back in the booth. Mr jonathan it. Hello me to in this episode. We are going to be looking at three felt by lindsay anderson. That all star malcolm mcdowell as michael mick travis some people including me call them the mick travis trilogy but they are as different from a trilogy as the evil dead films in if mick is the leader of a student revolution in lucky man. He's a coffee salesman and britannia hospital. He's an investigative reporter will be talking about how mick changes through the three films along with their possible connections and contradictions. If you can believe it we will be spoiling the hell out of these movies. Let's try to stay on topic with one film after another to that end jonathan. When was the first time you saw if and what did you think i personally on tv. I think Bbc two in late. Nineteen ninety-four. I remember show around christmas time and i was about seventeen at the time and i heard about the film before and i think i was quite interested in it because as you may know car inge who's actually banned still in the uk at that time and so. I think anything that was connected in some way to call. The car in which i hadn't seen yet was very exciting. So i think the presence of malcolm mcdowell and the fact that it was meant to be a little bit violent. I think intrigued me. But i'm ashamed to the time i saw. I didn't really sort of stay way. They didn't really click with me the third time. It just felt a little bit episode. They didn't even finish the first time. I think tied kind of tight then said to myself. Well i'll come back to it than i did. Come back with a few years later. When i was in my early twenties and this was about two thousand three unexploited cinema when it was re released that it completely clicked with me not just fell in love with love. They said rebellious style of it. I think it was you know as many people is probably a quick celtic experience for anybody who didn't really enjoy school. It was also you know the style that i loved. I loved the use of music that.
