Look Back in Anger

Tony Richardson, a key figure of the British New Wave movement, directs his “angry young man” adaptation of John Osborne’s influential play of the same name, starring Richard Burton. From Film School Rejects: “Look Back in Anger is a film about a whole generation, but of timeless value, as intense and uncompromising with the past as its title clearly suggests. As intense and uncompromising with its characters as the past they desperately try to overcome.”
