Bob Baker, of the British film journal Film Dope characterized Anderson as follows: "John Ford meets George Orwell."

"I'm not, unfortunately, a good careerist, and I'm not proud of that. It's just that to be a director today, you have to do so much more than actually direct. My problem is I don't speak the Hollywood language. I just don't." --Lindsay Anderson, in a 1987 Variety interview, quoted in his obituary in the September 1, 1994 issue of that industry trade.
