Critic Reviews for The Spirit of '45

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (5)

  • That The Spirit of '45 survives its simplifications is due to the sincerity and urgency of Loach's argument. And, regrettably, to its pertinence.

  • What could be, and largely is, a load of old lefties banging on about the wonders of golden age socialism, is also very much intended as a rallying call to action before the last vestiges of state ownership are tossed to the capitalists.

    September 1, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The veteran director Ken Loach hoists the red flag with The Spirit of '45, a polemical documentary filled with hope and heroism, which takes a look at the resurrection of Britain after the war.

    March 20, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Using eloquent archive footage and contemporary interviews not exactly representative of the other side of the argument, Loach hammers his points home one by one.

    March 15, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This film reminds us that admiring the health service has become a distinctively patriotic virtue.

    March 14, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film ends up as a tale told by an ideologue, full of sound and fury, of question-begging certitudes and the siege engines of self-righteousness.
