The writings of Lindsay Anderson

“there is no such thing as uncommitted criticism, anymore than there is such a thing as insignificant art. It is merely a question of the openness with which our commitments are stated. I do not believe that we should keep quiet about them.”

Lindsay Anderson, 'Stand Up! Stand Up!', originally published in Sight and Sound, Autumn 1956 and reprinted in Never Apologise: The Collected Writings (ed. Paul Ryan), p232
