What are people saying?

  • Matt Parks's rating of the film The Ragman's Daughter

    It's minor Sillitoe, and Becker's neutral realism lacks the bite of Reisz's *Saturday Night and Sunday Morning* and Richardson's *The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner*. Still it manages, albeit somewhat clumsily to get somewhere pretty moving . . . then unfortunately it stumbles on for another ten minutes getting back out to an suitable ending spot in the awkward framing story.
