Critic Reviews for Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach

All Critics (16)

The director's early days are thoroughly detailed here; if his later career is rushed over, an impressive trawl of talking heads (Gabriel Byrne, Cillian Murphy) keeps thing lively.

Ken Loach's recent Palme d'Or winner, I, Daniel Blake, has no British release date as yet, but his fans can turn instead to Louise Osmond's documentary Versus, a film that definitely shares their Loach love.

December 19, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This doc more than satisfies as a look back at Loach's pioneering work as a kitchen-sink social realist with films like Poor Cow and Kes, while inevitably uncovering the man's internal contradictions.

Talk about good timing. Having just scored the Palme d'Or at Cannes for I, Daniel Blake - he also won it in 2006 for The Wind that Shakes the Barley - Ken Loach receives the documentary treatment with this very fine overview of a chequered career.

August 10, 2016 | Full Review…

Offers a timely overview of a career defined by his opposition to a system that would probably rather he never made another.

June 5, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A favourable but hugely illuminating portrait of a contradictory man - polite, principled, ruthless - who is still influencing cinema today.
