The film is raw and confident, but it's a little shallow, too.

Lindsay Anderson, making his debut as a feature director, brings the keen, observant eye of a documentary man to many vivid episodes without sacrificing the story line.

A reminder that something really was stirring in those days of the British New Wave before it frittered itself away.

It's impossible not to appreciate the remarkable performances (both Harris and Roberts were nominated for Oscars) or the realistic rugby scenes that earned Harris a broken leg.

Probably the best crafted of the British 'kitchen sink' movies.
