I, KEN LOACH

MUBI Special

Looking for Eric

Ken Loach United Kingdom, 2009

Next in our Ken Loach double bill is an oddity amongst his filmography. While Loach’s passion for football is well known to his fans, he caught us all by surprise casting Eric Cantona in the role of a friendly ghost (!). A tragicomedy of magical realism, imbued with absurd, affecting humour.

Sweet Sixteen

Ken Loach United Kingdom, 2002

Thank god Ken didn’t keep his promise of retirement: I, Daniel Blake makes clear the implacable angry man has still plenty to say. With the film opening, we look back at one of Loach’s most potent works of the oughties, a raw, uncompromising coming of age that expertly reframes kitchen sink realism.
