Sharp, disturbing documentary
on 24 June 2011
A very disquieting documentary about the gradual leaching away of civil
rights under Tony Blair.
Always interesting and entertaining, and occasionally deeply
Yet for me it just misses greatness through it's one-sided arguments
that sometimes feel a bit forced, without acknowledgment that
it represents a personal view point.
The difference between someone blatantly, admitting 'this is my
perspective', as a film-maker like Michael Moore does, and this film's
pretense at 'objectivity' makes it a bit harder to take, and somehow
less affecting than films that are more honest that they are stating
(in this case quite effectively) a specific point-of-view.
None-the-less, I'd re-watch this, and I'm sure I'd enjoy it again,
and learn more. An important film about just how fragile democracy is.
