Set in a Catholic boy's school, this wearisome tale concerns a group of obnoxious rich students and their pompous headmasters. The film tries hard to be an allegory of the anti-establishment social atmosphere of the early 1970s, evidently attempting to prove that Mankind is basically bestial by depicting all the characters as repulsive and self-serving. There's no highlight to speak of, though the scene in which the students stage a deliberately offensive amateur theatrical is perhaps the most watchable sequence. In the Name of the Father is a dreary exercise in heavy-handedness and repetition.
