      Renata Adler New York Times It is rare to find a portrayal of a gentle young man without any air of effeminacy or saintliness. Dennis Waterman does the whole difficult thing exactly right. Jan 9, 2018 Full Review Manny Farber Artforum [It assumes] good acting is the automatic result of a deep, uncritical, tough, saccharine grubbiness. Jun 17, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Peter L Loved it in the 60s and loving it in 2023 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw Up The Junction many years ago and liked the natural performances of Adrienne Posta and Maureen Lipman who acted really well. And Suzy Kendall acted well and looked great with Denns Waterman. On Facebook we have a group called (Up The Junction Film 1967 Suzy Kendall Dennis Waterman Adrienne Posta) with 583 members including Adrienne Posta and Tony Klinger Producer on the film and Sound Editor Ron Taylor. We have several interesting pictures and videos. Please take a look. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Slightly dated British slice-of-life drama. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining bit of drama, posh bird roughs it because she wants to make her own way in the world, without being a 'parasite'. Lots of eventful stuff going on, and very atmospheric. Music is good too. And it's fun to see some familiar faces when they were much younger. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member brilliant film & it sort of reminds me of the story of the Buddha in a way. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member The lead characters are a vibrant whirlwind of bouffant hairdos, dirty laughs and the latest brightly coloured 60's fashions that spin into every alley way and crevice of 60's Battersea exposing the grim realities of their daily lives for us all to see. At the eye of the storm is Polly (anna?) a plum voiced princess from Chelsea who chooses this life over her own getting a job at the factory and living in a bedsit. Polly's brief act of rebellion however innocent proves destructive when she allows Peter a removals boy for a secondhand furniture dealer to fall for her. Emotions run high and reality looms closer to reach an inevitable conclusion. Excellent 60's drama. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
