Ken Loach यूनाइटेड किंगडम, 1998

dionysus67's rating of the film My Name Is Joe

Familiar territory for Loach who deftly generates another gripping social drama. Punctuated by some hilarious moments (i.e. the football match), it features an astonishing Mullan, aided by a naturalistically acting ensemble. Loach manages to balance critique with a genuine appreciation of current possibilities and he scores wonders in the scene of Joe's repose as he listens to classical music. A humanist manifesto.
