Britannia Hospital (Blu-ray) Indicator Ltd


The concluding instalment in Lindsay Anderson’s Mick Travis trilogy, following If…. and O Lucky Man!Britannia Hospital finds the filmmaker casting a sourly satirical eye over Thatcher’s Britain. With a phenomenal cast at his disposal – everyone from Alan Bates (Georgy Girl) and Joan Plowright (Time Without Pity) to Robin Askwith (Confessions of a Window Cleaner) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) to Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) reprising the role of Travis – Anderson trains his sights on royalty, trade unions, the media, and scientific research in typically uncompromising fashion.
