Blu-Ray News #170: The Knack… And How To Get It (1965).

Directed by Richard Lester
Starring Rita Tushingham, Ray Brooks, Michael Crawford, Donal Donnelly

In between the Beatles movies A Hard Days Night (1964) and Help! (1965), Richard Lester won the prize at the Cannes Film Festival with The Knack… And How To Get It (1965).

It’s a very funny film, for starters. But the real standouts here, to me, are the cinematography by David Watkin and the editing by Antony Gibbs. They’re on top of whatever crazy idea Lester tosses into the movie next.

The BFI is bringing The Knack to Blu-Ray in July, filled with extras. Highly recommended.
