Critic Reviews for The Spirit of '45
The film works all at once as a lament, a celebration and a wake-up call to modern politicians and voters.
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.
A fond postcard from Ken Loach from the era when British socialism with a democratic spirit gripped the nation in a post-war embrace. His sense of cinema serves him well and he knows how to elicit emotions with the various tools at his disposal
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.
