I, DANIEL BLAKE
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.
