About this product
- DescriptionFor more than 30 years, Ken Loach's films have examined the social, political, ecomic, and psychological costs of living in Great Britain. These invariably controversial film and television works-Cathy Come Home, Kes, Hidden Agenda, Riff-Raff, and Land and Freedom, among others-represent a continuing commitment to using film for political purposes. In this first English-language book on Loach, McKnight brings together seven original critical essays on major aspects of Loach's work, an interview with the director, as well as comprehensive reference material. The essays examine Loach's ongoing concerns with social and political issues in Britain, questions of censorship, the way in which he develops film narratives around public issues, and the format and stylistic questions raised by his particular approach to filmmaking. An important collection for all students and researchers of contemporary film.
