Portraying anger through film

Versus: the life and films of Ken Loach. Currently on iplayer. Preaching to the converted as Loach is my favourite film-maker of all time. I'd have liked to have seen more about my favourite Loach films (My Name is Joe, The Wind that shakes the barley, Carla's Song etc, but this was more about the man and his way of channeling his left wing anger through film. 7 out of ten. Can't wait to see his Palm D'or winner I, Daniel Blake.
