  • This is a fitting and satisfying tribute.

  • Hardly revelatory, but Ken seems like a nice fellow.

    Jun 2, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Dec 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.
