Critic Reviews for Never Apologize: A Personal Visit With Lindsay Anderson

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

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

August 19, 2008 | Rating: 4/5

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.

August 15, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

August 14, 2008 | Rating: 3/6

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.

September 5, 2008 | Full Review…

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