Critic Reviews for Still The Enemy Within

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

  • This is timely, important and truthful cinema, at once bitter, nostalgic and unexpectedly uplifting.

  • Gower's film is a heartfelt tribute to the communities who were hammered by political, not economic, forces. They look bloodied, but unbowed.

  • 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.

  • Director Owen Gower mixes plentiful archive footage with contemporary interviews to cut through the media rhetoric about rioting pickets and paint an altogether more alarming portrait of a carefully orchestrated state crackdown.

  • 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.
