One sided but impassioned and relevant in these closing days
21 June 2016 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

A series of talking heads, including journalists, politicians, and key figures in the Leave Campaign (including Nigel Farage) comment on various issues raised by filmmaker Martin Durkin, who travels to Brussels and attempts to untangle the myriad layers of the European Union headquarters, with the numerous courts, and layers of red tape and bureaucracy, as well as the illusive heads of this cryptic organisation.

There are near enough only forty eight hours to go now as I'm writing this review, before the polling stations will be closing, the votes cast and the fate of the future of Britain's infrastructure will be changed forever one way or the other, after which doing this review would be somewhat irrelevant. The campaign is well and truly at fever pitch, and it's all now resting on a knife edge. Martin Durkin would appear to be in favour of leaving, and it shows with this little feature that illustrates how illusive it is, what a negative impact it's having on various people, and how the country could have a better future without it.

Durkin appears mainly concerned with highlighting what a bossy, bully boy institution the EU has become, imposing restrictions on fishermen in the North East, for example, and reducing their intake from their heyday, as well as the various quotas and tariffs imposed on small businesses trying to compete against failing common stock. In this sense, it certainly emerges as a very persuasive case, and the raft of evidence is certainly very engaging. While it's a shame alternative viewpoints are not allowed to put their cases forward, they are at least considered, and a rosier outlook to their gripes is presented.

For Brexiteers, it's certainly an illuminating showcase of their arguments, mainly in the fields of democracy, accountability and fairness, without fixating too much on sovereignty. As one sided as it is, it's well worth a watch in what is now the final countdown to the end decision. ****
