Top of page

Interviews with director Donald Brittain are interwoven with the best of his documentary films in this series. Author of one of the major novels of this century, Under the Volcano, Malcom Lowry fought a winning battle with words and a losing battle with liquor. The words of his novel, hautingly read by Richard Burton, are combined with interviews given by the people who loved and hated Lowry. More than a portrait, it is a reflection on the agonies of all humankind.
