A modern interpretation of a classic with a magnetic female lead. Florence Pugh is incredible. Dark, manipulative and unforgiving. A disturbing but thoroughly moving tale.
Another politically relevant film released at the tail-end of last year. I, Daniel Blake is a sometimes brutally honest portrayal of working class Britain. A carefully paced narrative that really lets you sink your teeth into Blake's life and struggle, and leaves you as a somewhat bittersweet anarchist ready to vandalise a local government building. Daniel Blake is a working class carpenter superhero.
