if.... is an award-winning 1968 feature film by British director Lindsay Anderson satirising English public school life. Famous for its depiction of a savage insurrection at a public school, the film is associated with the 1960s counterculture movement because it was filmed by a longstanding counter-culture director at the time of the student uprisings in Paris in May 1968. It includes controversial statements, such as: "There's no such thing as a wrong war. Violence and revolution are the only pure acts". It features surrealist sequences throughout the film. Upon release in the UK, it received an X certificate.
The film stars Malcolm McDowell in his first screen role and his first appearance as Anderson's "everyman" character, Mick Travis. Arthur Lowe, Peter Jeffrey, Richard Warwick, David Wood, Christine Noonan, and Rupert Webster (as the young boy Bobby Phillips) also took starring roles.
It won the Grand Prix at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival. In 2004, the magazine Total Film named it the sixteenth greatest British film of all time.
