Still The Enemy Within (2014)
Critic Reviews for Still The Enemy Within
This is timely, important and truthful cinema, at once bitter, nostalgic and unexpectedly uplifting.
Powerful first-hand testimony from British miners on how their defeat led inevitably to the rise of the one percent. From Thatcher to Reagan, we are still paying the price.

Packed with brilliant archive footage, Still The Enemy Within will send blood pressures rising again. But it doesn't really address ( ... ) why anyone today would still want to be working like a mole in such dangerous conditions.
Should be compulsory viewing not only for school students learning about British history, but also for anyone who has even a remote interest in the relatively recent events that are still shaping this country today.
