Essentially a stage production of Malcolm Macdowell musing over his departed friend, and brit director Lindsey Anderson. Macdowell makes for an engaging raconteur, but only for Anderson fans.

Malcolm McDowell is thoroughly engaging in Never Apologize: A Personal Visit With Lindsay Anderson.

The film Never Apologize... doesn't sound like compelling viewing. But when the man on the stage is actor Malcolm McDowell and his subject is British filmmaker Lindsay Anderson, the viewing is entertaining and touching.

But the actor too earnestly prolongs readings from the director's diaries and letters, turning the experience into more of an undisciplined airing of bitchy candor.

McDowell's affectionate, mischievous impersonations and clips from Anderson's body of work make for an easy couple of hours.

An uncinematic form, perhaps, but of absorbing interest to cinema-lovers.

His account of Anderson's demise moves, but by then, this arch-raconteur's bluster may have sand-papered your patience.

Affectionate, mischievous and informative, it's a rewarding insight into one of Britain's largely forgotten celluloid heroes.

It's not great cinema, but it's never less than good fun; watch it in conjunction with Anderson's recently published diaries, and you'll get a sense of a unique, irreplaceable and finally very human talent.

Whether it can justify a bigger release remains to be seen, though it's gossipy and amusing, and McDowell incidentally shows no strain in carrying such a long solo stage piece.

For anyone interested in the life and work of Lindsay Anderson, however, and indeed the British New Wave more generally, Never Apologize is an illuminating piece of film.

There's plenty of fascinating material here, yet many of the anecdotes fall flat.
