I, DANIEL BLAKE

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

Thank good­ness reg­u­lar col­lab­o­ra­tor Paul Laverty per­suaded Ken Loach of re­tire­ment for one more story. This is a bold, bravura and quite bril­liant slice of Bri­tish drama that’s en­rag­ing, en­chant­ing and en­gross­ing in equal mea­sure. At once a sear­ing so­cial drama and Kafka-es­que night­mare, Blake is a timely but grim as­sess­ment of mod­ern day Bri­tain’s ills.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dis­played ter­rific chem­istry in La La Land.
