What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film McLibel

    Although a decent minded documentary, the sketchy explanation of the contents of the leaflet over which McDonald's sued for libel, slightly wrong foots this programme from the start. Although select points emerge during reconstructions, the rationale seems to be a perceived auto-villainy of the corporation rather than the establishment of rigorous groundwork. The cheer for plucky David however is loudly made.

  • Harriehhh's rating of the film McLibel

    The story that got buried by time. It’s a bit depressing to watch in 2018, only because nothing really seems to change. Still, three cheers for these two brave souls who stood up to the Man and won – twice, no less.
