Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Failed student Michael York becomes a policeman and immediately gets entangled with bent cops, drug dealing and lustful Susan George. Like David Greene's previous film, Sebastian, this film's swinging London trappings - Indian mystics, flower people, garish decor, circular beds, touristy locations - tend to work against the more traditional underworld elements and one is never quite sure if York has corruption in his genes or if he's just a berk. He is, though, firmly established as a cultural icon of the 1960s. On the plus side are some diverting supporting performances and flashes of quirky, almost surreal humour.
