[6.50/10] I, Daniel Blake (2016)

I, Daniel Blake (2016)

Quick Review: Loach's minimalistic visual style may be too simple and low-key for mass audiences, but it establishes a high sense of realism that more than suits the film's down- to-earth essence of social drama. Empathic, moving, quietly powerful, and equally funny and miserable, "I, Daniel Blake" is all about facing the horror of bureaucracy, but also tells a powerful backstory that makes an even bigger impact then the central one, with the charming Johns being at the very heart of both.
