The overall picture/sound is about an 8-9 / 10. The original film reels don't seem to have been restored or remastered, but it is still very crisp and colourful nonetheless. It looks terrific on a widescreen 40" LCD TV.
The extras are actually better than expected, considering that they probably rushed the job. To be honest, I expected nothing except a voice commentary.
- The "O Lucky Malcolm!" documentary is very well done, running almost an hour and a half. This documentary is not about "O Lucky Man!" per se, but about Malcolm; it is also available on the new "Clockwork Orange" DVD release. My guess is that it was probably produced for the "Clockwork Orange" DVD release, only to be added to this release after Malcolm insisted that they produce it. Malcolm's current wife, ex-wife, and two oldest offspring make appearances, along with a host of others, and you really get to know Malcolm (and his family) through this documentary.
- "O Lucky Man! Innovations in Entertainment" starts off well but only runs for less than 5 minutes. It contains a brief interview with a young Malcolm though, and shows a few glimpses of behind-the-scenes action.
- The voice commentary is shared between Malcolm, Alan Price, and some intelligent but rather stale ol' fossil of an historian. Malcolm does most of the talking thankfully.Read more ›
sly political and social satire, and jammed with wildly brave
film-making choices, along with one of the great movie song-scores of
in movie history by Alan Price.
Its Candide meets 1970s Great Britan as a young man rambles through
life in a series of absurd adventures, with the great supporting cast
(Ralph Richardson, Helen Mirren, etc.) having the time of their lives
playing multiple roles.
The three hour running time may sound daunting, but it flies by as we
watch our hero Mick Travis (Malcolm McDowell, whose real life
pre-acting experiences were the jumping off point for the story) slowly
become wise to the ways of the world through a series of bizarre
encounters, arrests, love affairs, odd medical experiments,
and everything else that could befall a young man on the road.
A must see film for anyone who appreciates unique films and British

An interesting story of a young man trying to find his way in life and "make it". It exposes social hypocrisy which, to this day, remains embedded in society. Read morePublished 8 months ago by R. Duncan
