In a world where eight men own just as much as the 50 percent poorest, we need films like I, Daniel Blake to remind us of the humans behind the numbers, their every day struggle, kindness and humanity.
This is the mother of dark and twisted films. It just keeps escalating into darkness until you are gaping in awe. It's disturbing as hell the best part of the movies are the small transgressions, the looks, eye rolls, the biting sarcastic one liners, the mundane representation of death. It is one of the most perfect pitch black comedies I've ever seen. Its devotion to being totally devoid of sentimentality and moral is a pleasure. Huppert is breathtaking and her Elle might be the most fascinating female characther I've seen in a very long time!
