DEN­NIS SKIN­NER: NA­TURE OF THE BEAST

OUT 8 SEPTEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Labour MP Den­nis Skin­ner has a rep­u­ta­tion for fire­brand prin­ci­ples and fe­ro­cious wit. Yet this low-bud­get doc, the de­but of Daniel Draper, paints a gen­tler pic­ture of Skin­ner as a na­turelover and singer. Af­fec­tion­ate yet me­an­der­ing, it lingers too long on minu­tiae. Still, Skin­ner is a funny, fas­ci­nat­ing man, ex­plored here with fer­vency. Stephen Kelly
