The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid (2017)
Critic Reviews for The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid
He's a unique character, but what makes it such a hypnotic and mesmerising documentary is the way it's so delicately constructed.
The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid - one man who simply wants to stay in his house and in his fields - is in sum a fascinating portrait of a determined son of the land.
With The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid, Irish director Feargal Ward has crafted one of the most unique and, perhaps, indefinable pieces of cinema this year.
There's an ageless, timeless quality to the rhythms and routines of life on Thomas Reid's cattle farm.
Ward's picture remains unconditionally besotted with this stubborn, brave rebel of the old school.
Through Reid, radio extracts and re-enactments the documentary paints a good picture of the life he is defending, of the foes he fought and how. And it raises issues about values that need to be discussed now more than ever.
