Versus:  The Life and Films of Ken Loach

£11.50

This is a funny, provocative and revealing account of the life and career of one of NSC’s favourite filmmakers, Ken Loach, as he turned eighty. The film looks back at over fifty years of filmmaking, encompassing classics such as Cathy Come Home, Kes, The Wind That Shakes the Barley and Ken’s latest, I, Daniel Blake (2016).

I had forgotten until I saw this film that in the 1970s and 1980s Ken fell severely out of favour with the establishment and that he was an actor himself at one time. I thoroughly enjoyed this film with its interviews with script-writers, actors, friends and even Ken’s family.
