Life at the Top

T60038his sequel to Room at the Top was damned with faint praise on its first release in 1965 and has long been viewed as part of Lawrence Harvey’s decline (eventually relegated to bit parts in Columbo and second-rate horror movies). Such a critical stand however is unfair, when the film is judged alongside the likes of Look Back in Anger or Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. Life at the Top could best be described as ‘what the Angry Young Man did next’.
