Quotes

Mary Berry: It's the lack of imagination that my father talks about. It's not really looking at what's happening. It's not really counting the cost. It's some kind of dream or ideal that is false. It serves an economy that is false. And it works against nature so it's not in any way sustainable and it's made slaves out of a lot of people.

Not about Berry.
31 August 2018 | by halestorm-27305See all my reviews

It's a beautifully shot film, I'll give it that, but this whole thing was a wasted opportunity to talk about the man himself. Instead it spends most of its runtime going on about how terrible it is that people own things. I wouldn't expect any more from a film that's literally funded by the Open Society Foundation.
