Mike Leigh United Kingdom, 2018

Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Peterloo

I understand the polarization. But for me, this was an incredible film and the way historical political films should be made- an evocation of the present without directly referencing it. Mike Leigh realizes that the poor have always been treated like shit and until there is true leftist policies and equality, we must be angry and stand up to the bourgeois authority!
