  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Days of Hope

    Sprawlingly partisan but principled drama that pulls off that too-frequently used device: personal drama as a fig-leaf cipher for larger social concerns (of course everything is In context of something but the chicken certainly comes before the egg here). The earlier episodes are strongest (tough military training for a pacifist); the second half suffering from polemic. Nevertheless it has an integrity of endeavour.

  2. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Days of Hope

    "It was actually kinda like reading Tolstoy..." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/07/episode-66-ken-loach-jim-allens-days-of.html

  3. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Days of Hope

    Episode one is the best thing Loach has ever done; episodes two and three are very fine, if not at episode one level; episode four, given over to Loach's love of interminable political dialogues, is so dramatically inert it's ruinous.
