Sharp, cutting documentary about the damage to UK civil liberties under Tony Blair
A sort of 'Michael Moore goes to England' documentary about the gradual leaching away of civil rights under Tony Blair.
Always interesting and entertaining, and occasionally deeply disturbing.
Yet for me it just misses greatness through it's one-sided arguments that sometimes feel a bit forced, without the human voice that Moore puts on his films.
The difference between someone blatantly, admitting 'this is my perspective', as a film- maker like Moore does, and this film's pretense at 'objectivity' makes it a bit harder to take, and somehow less affecting than films that are more honest that they are stating (in this case quite effectively) a specific point-of-view.
None-the-less, I'd re-watch this, and I'm sure enjoy it again. But here in the States, the 'Daily Show' does it better, and a lot more succinctly.
