Very much a product of the revolution in the air of 1968, Hatton's first feature has rather dated in its attempts to state a case for radical social change in Britain. More than a little muddled anyway when trying to be serious, it was always much better at digging satirically into areas of bad faith as its hero, a 30-year-old Marxist-Leninist of working class origins (sharply played by a pre-Sweeney Thaw), seduces a string of bourgeois beauties in the hope of also impregnating them with his revolutionary message. As in Long Shot, Hatton's quirkish sense of humour is the thing.
