Karel Reisz directs with his usual sympathy for character; sadly, it's not quite enough.

The physical creakiness only adds to the sense of mental dilapidation suffered by the anti-hero.

TV Guide
March 14, 2016
The director's attempt to blend reality and fantasy is sometimes successful, but the humor is strained as a result and doesn't always work.

Director Reisz sustains the free-flowing tone with cinematic stunt work.

Poor Morgan, one feels; victim of a satire that doesn't bite, lost in a technical confusion of means and ends, and emerging like an identikit photograph, all bits and pieces and no recognisable face.

Instead of providing the subtle, gradually disintegrating character of Morgan, Reisz dwells on the comedic aspects of each prank, cunningly milked for maximum yaks, in the process ceding any hope of the observer taking Morgan seriously.

A cult fave from the 1960s.

Reisz' black comedy has not aged well, but it's a good capsule of its time, a combo of the angry mood of Look Back in Anger and the anarchic-nihilistic humor of Swinging London, which may explain why it was a campus favorite.

Morgan sticks in the memory as a collection of funny moments, with the fatal habit (shared by If..., among others) of confronting issues, then farting around when the going gets rough.

Despite fine performances both from the underrated Warner and from the beautiful Redgrave in her film debut, this is very much a product of its time, a series of sketches that add up to little and take us nowhere.

Not since Alec Guinness played Gulley Jimson in The Horse's Mouth and vitalized that sly bohemian scapegrace with charm and poignancy have we seen an artistic nonconformist as wild as David Warner's Morgan Delt.

Combines comedy, charm and a sense of something deeply disturbing in just about equal measure.

The jumpy cutting and mannered visuals date it very badly now, though Vanessa Redgrave (in her movie debut) is high compensation.
