9/10

“One man can change the world with a bullet in the right place.” echos the words spoken by Mick Travis the anti-hero of this chaotic portrait of Britains’ boarding school. “if….” can almost be seen as an angry anti-establishment nonconformist handbook. Though this film is more than three decades old the themes are still just as important as they were when the film was originally released. Mick Travis the main protagonist, is assessed as a everyday man instead of per-say a normal character. We follow Travis and his two friends as they are abused physically and mentally till the point of snapping (which has to be one of the most bold climax of  a film I have ever watched).
