I, Daniel Blake (2016) Blu Ray
I, Daniel Blake is so political, talking about it without losing sight of its message is hard work, much like Loach's other Palme D'Or (2006) winner, The Wind That Shakes Barley. Yes they are both brutal and inspiring and enraging. Yes I, Daniel Blake won awards, and the reason it did isn't sweeping landscapes, it is pure power. My notes are so angry, and won't make the cut, but suffice it to say the system is only an indicator or the problem. Look at the monsters upholding that system.
