It's listed as number 82, in this book I have about the 100 greatest films of all time.  The description looks interesting to me...but it's not available on Netflix.  Is it good?  Is it worth buying?

Yes, it's definitely worth seeing. It was so shocking when it was released. The incident that happens in this film is similar to and way ahead of the Columbine High School shooting. But there is a clear difference. The film is about a rebellion against tradition, authority and opression. It's a revolution by students. And it's a very symbolic film of 60's.

You should also see another collaboration of Anderson and McDowell, "O, Lucky Man". You learn a philosophy of life from this film. I did.

I can't find it for sale on DVD.  The only VHS I see is used.

Yes, that's the pity. Not available even in UK. What a shame! But hang on, JonO, I got a hunch that Paramount is going to release it sometime soon along with "O, Lucky Man!" For now, you can sign up for  "Alert Me" in Amazon. They'll let you know when it becomes available.

Until then, keep reading this proverb. "Wisdom is the principal thing. Therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding." --Proverbs IV:2
 
It's a proverb used in the opening of "if---".
