Taking Liberties (2007)
Critic Reviews for Taking Liberties
'Taking Liberties' seems designed as a campaign aid and intended - in its careful exclusion of over-heated or passionate voices - as a putative appeal to slumbering Middle England.
"The most important film of the decade", this calls itself, though "most self-righteous" might be closer to the truth.
We are the checks and balances on government, and while a slightly more restrained, finessed film may have carried that message more effectively, Taking Liberties will inspire many viewers to reconsider their responsibilities and those of their government
Speaking out against the proposed identity card scheme, Taking Liberties is both a call to action and a warning against a future where the current restrictions escalate into a Big Brother society.
The film plays like an absurdist drama set in a state that more closely resembles Zimbabwe than the home of freedom. Watch it and get angry
Audience Reviews for Taking Liberties
Brings up important points, uses some good examples. However very one sided, does really give depth or carry investigative weight as ingores anything that doesn't fit the attack it wants to make. However there are points here that do need to be taken notice of.
A brilliantly researched and produced documentary about erosion of civil liberties under New Labour. Unfortunately all the right people aren't going to see this, and those who do will just be put off by all the peaceniks at the start of the film.
