Loach in fine form, at the peak of his craft. Proletarian realism does not get better than this.

Another great achievement from England's Ken Loach.

Ken Loach at his best.

Shadows on the Wall

Portrays the invisible class barriers and ways of seeing the world that can hobble the future of hopeful lovers.

It was a good idea having subtitles, because the heavy Scottish accents are very difficult to understand.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Loach's keen eye for unpolished reality and Mullan's passionate, well-modulated turn keep the film well worth watching.

Mullan has a combination of good looks, virility, and sensitivity all at once - a terrific package.

An uneasy mesh of character-driven privileged moments and occasionally muddled melodrama.

Audience Reviews for My Name Is Joe (Mein Name ist Joe)

Ken Loach is one of the best directors in the world and Peter Mullan is one of the best actors in the world. This was always going to be great. An overlooked classic.

Not bad. Not bad. A bit of a dip for Loach but there is enough to sustain your interest here.
