Trivia

Goofs

Cummings refers to "The Art of War" being written by "Tzu". "The Art of War" was written by Sun Tzu, which literally translates to "Master Sun"; therefore it would have been by "Sun", if only one name is to be used, because "Tzu" is a title, not an actual name. See more »

Quotes

Dominic Cummings: ...as a global society we are entering a series of profound economic, cultural, social and political transitions, the like of which the world has never seen: massive increase in resource requirements, rising tide of religious extremism, the synthesis of the generational inequalities in the West on an historic level.

Terrifying
12 January 2019 | by LiamCullen6See all my reviews

In the run-up to the 2016 referendum, nobody in the UK - or elsewhere, for that matter - genuinely believed that Vote Leave would win (similarly to the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election result). It seemed more or less incomprehensible that Remain would be defeated. This is arguably evidenced by the fact that there were no rules set out for the referendum and the meaning of its outcome (e.g. that it should require more than a measly 2% majority to invoke such major Constitutional upheaval) and that David Cameron resigned almost immediately thereafter.

This energetic and witty film explores just how the rug was swept out from under us all, and highlights how dangerous social media can be when used as a weapon. Unsurprisingly, Benedict Cumberbatch gives yet another engrossing performance, with an impressive and entertaining ensemble as well.

Whether you were politically-engaged in relation to the referendum or completely overwhelmed by all the jargon (and utter lies), this is an insightful drama well worth a watch. Although, don't expect it to outline what is certain to happen next in the Brexit saga: that'll be down to the fool at the helm of the ship, and her band of dim-witted and utterly divided crew.
