As the previous reviewer noted there is poignance in this film. There are also large swaths of boredom like the gorilla stuff, the repetitive sex romps and dumb pranks and most especially the shopworn premise of the "mad" artist who cannot fit into bourgeois society (maybe because said artist is an obnoxious butthole who is always putting down bourgeois society for its lack of creativity while not doing much in that area himself beyond day glo paintings of tigers that look like Saturday at the shopping mall stuff). Also, director Karel Reisz is of the overly frenetic "let's do lots of fancy camera stuff like jump cuts, freeze frames, and fast motion" school of film making so that the few touching scenes like the ending at the sanitorium and the scene with Morgan and his mom in the cemetery get swamped in a sea of 60 counterculture cuteness. C plus.

Morgan! is a film that laughs through its tears. The story of an artist, driven over the edge by his love for a society woman who is, at once, drawn to him and unable to commit to a life outside the margins. This is one of the most poignant films ever made about an artist - and the discrepancy between individual vision and social acceptance. In its refusal to be either one thing or another (comedy, tragedy or satire), Morgan! stakes its claim as a true work of art, and one of the defining films of its era. Oh, and Vanessa Redgrave and David Warner are superb.
Morgan! A Suitable Case For Treatment
This was a seminal film for the post-Angry Young Men generation. Please show it frequently, especially as it isn't available on DVD.
This flick should be shared with all generations, It has great 60s flair with its eccentric lead (David Warner) as a dreamer & lover with "animal"magnetism! Vanessa Redgrave as the sheik ex wife is a real charmer. If that's not enough there's an odd political sub-plot! I saw this film when I was about seventeen, and now at sixty-one, I think it still holds up! T.C.M. should broadcast this great film.
Hoover and Nixon are dead so who's afraid to show this film. I know it's not a cartoon or computer generated but there are people out here that still think.
A Gap in the '60's Movies
I have several times suggested this movie for showing on TCM and now want to second those who have done so in their reviews. I'm only 64 but at this rate I may never get to see it again either.Along with movies such as Blow-up and Georgie Girl, Morgan really brought British film making to the attention of American viewers in the 1960's. It seems to be the only one of those really important films -- add Alfie to the list of those shown regularly -- that never gets shown.
Please show it
- Desperate to View
This is a marvellous film which 've not seen in a long long time and at my age (77) I may not see it before I die, so ple4ase show it.
- A Watcher
This is an intriguing story with excellent acting by the players, including the young Vanessa Redgrave. The last shot is a wry comment on the whole film - I won't spoil it by telling you what it is. The Gorilla scenes come from the most famous gorilla movie set in New York. Please show it again,it has been a long time since I saw it as a student.
