'O Lucky Man!' to screen Nov. 5-8

RELEASED: Oct. 23, 2009

poster for O Lucky ManEAU CLAIRE — Lindsay Anderson's "O Lucky Man!" (1973) will screen Nov. 5-8 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The University Activities Commission of the Student Senate will present the film at 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.

The film traces the picaresque adventures of the good-natured Mick Travis (Malcolm McDowell) on his journey through life, from his first job as a coffee salesman to his being cast as the perfect innocent in a movie. Loosely conceived as a sequel to "If" (1968), the previous Anderson-McDowell collaboration, the satirical odyssey targets advertising, the military, politics, science, religion, class and filmmaking itself.

"Nothing is as it seems in Anderson's epic three-hour comedy, which hurls its eager-to-please Everyman hero through every imaginable strata of British society without pausing to make sense of it all," wrote The A.V. Club.

The 183-minute film is rated R.

Admission is free at the door with a Blugold Card or International Film Society membership. IFS memberships are available at the Service Center (715-836-3727) in Davies Center's east lobby.

More information about the campus film series is available online and at the Activities and Programs office, Davies Center 133.
