"Winnie" gradually reveals itself to be rather a specious work, unabashedly one-sided in its adherence to the "mother of the nation" line pushed by her admirers, and its factually selective absolution of Madikizela-Mandela ...
Nothing new to see here.
Story of controversial activist has violence, mature themes.
Most rousing of all in the film is Winnie herself. She's still going strong and is a vibrant presence through a number of interviews.
Lamche's agenda is clear for all to see, and isn't necessarily a bad thing. The ability to portray a former freedom fighter turned into a figure of hate, serves as a good example in how a documentary can be both factual and narrative-led
This documentary is frank, personal, and totally unapologetic.
There is reluctance on the part of Lamche to say too much about some of the more murky areas of Winnie's life.
I do think the filmmakers sought to overturn Mandela's infamy, but don't assume they fulfill that goal subjectively.
Lamache's efforts to unravel not only the tale at hand but also the reasoning behind the many conflicting views surrounding her subject - and the ripples both leave in the country today - are deftly handled.
