Denial movie review: a film for the resistance

30 January 2017 2:14 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… A terrific legal procedural about defending factual truth and smacking dishonest sowers of doubt. An essential film for our era of “alternative facts.” I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Not all opinions are equal,” says historian Deborah Lipstadt in Denial. “The Earth is round, the ice caps are melting, and Elvis is not alive.” And six million Jews really were killed by the Nazi death machine in World War II, which is the pertinent point of this riveting docudrama. This is the true story of the 2000 libel trial in which Lipstadt, a professor at Atlanta’s Emory University who specializes in Holocaust history, was forced to defend herself against professional Holocaust denier David Irving, who didn’t like that she dared to cast him »

Denial review

26 January 2017 6:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall headline Denial, a film released at a very timely moment...

People often talk about a marriage of director and material, and the moment when the right person gets their hands on the right story. That generally tends to refer to projects where there’s a slightly demonstrative or overtly stylistic element to the project in question. But I wonder if, for a quieter example, we should be holding up the unfussy diligence of Mick Jackson, in his bringing of Denial to the big screen.

Denial is a dramatisation of Holocaust denier David Irving’s libel action against American academic Deborah E. Lipstadt. Timothy Spall takes the former role, Rachel Weisz takes the latter. It’s also a deliberately quiet movie, a little contradictory given the outrage the real life events caused.

We meet the pair of them at the start in a slightly shaky opening, »

Mick Jackson interview: Denial, The Bodyguard, Donald Trump

Simon Brew Jan 27, 2017

Director Mick Jackson on Denial, Donald Trump, directing films, and how he followed The Bodyguard...

Mick Jackson has lived through several chapters of his directorial career. His background was television, in particular the stunning Threads, and his classy adaptation of Chris MullinsA Very British Coup. Then he went to Hollywood, directing the likes of L.A. Story, The Bodyguard and Volcano.

He’s been away from cinema for a while, courtesy of some intriguing television projects. But he returns to the big screen this weekend with Denial, a classy courtroom drama that brings the story of Holocaust denier David Irving’s infamous libel action to the cinema. We snagged a chat with him ahead of its release, with the promise of further conversation about his 90s output at a later date too.

Can you talk us through this particular film, and why you wanted to bring it to the big screen? »
