Description Newcastle upon Tyne, England. On the very far side of middle age, widowed Daniel Blake, a construction worker specializing in fine carpentry work, is recuperating from a heart attack. Despite his GP and cardiologist's assessment that he is not yet fit enough to return to work, he is denied employment and support allowance based on the standardized criteria assessment by the government agency. With no savings and no personal support, he is relying on some sort of government financial assistance to help him through this time when he should not be working. As he tries to set in motion the appeals process for the employment and support allowance and as he tries to find any other government program for which he may even be remotely eligible to tie him through the short term until he is deemed healthy enough to return to work, he runs into one bureaucratic quagmire after another, each process seemingly designed to make people like him fail and give up. Through this time, he is enmeshed within the lives of two sets of people. The first is his young neighbor, China, and China's friend, Piper, who are trying to start a new business in today's global economy. The second is Katie Morgan, a single mother to adolescents Daisy and Dylan Morgan. The Morgans have just moved to Newcastle from London solely as that is where there was social housing available. Katie too has fallen into the bureaucratic runaround at social services. Regardless, Katie is determined to make a home for her two children despite her financial problems. Regardless of his own health and financial issues, the former which he doesn't tell Katie, Daniel is equally determined that Katie will not end up in the same situation as him, he doing whatever he can to help her.

The film begins with a dream that is meant to be beautiful, but isn't. After dreaming it, he wakes up and realizes he has now seen the murderer, who is played by Chris Columbus. The flashback then shows the two making a pact that they will not be seeing each other until she gets a new boyfriend. He knows it is his turn to be a part of her new boyfriend, and he begins to look for a guy that can be her boyfriend. After some soul searching, he comes across a man named Ben, who is only a character actor and doesn't really have a name. He doesn't really know who he is, and it becomes more obvious as the film goes on. Eventually, the two meet and the only thing that is obvious about them is that they have known each other for a long time. The fact that they really know each other and both have used the other for sex in the past means they have known each other for years. The main characters begin to fall in love with each other, and while they are still at a loss as to what to do, they decide to just go ahead and have a "relationship". This is what leads to the story. The story isn't as compelling as it could have been. A lot of the scenes in this film are really interesting and makes the film really watchable, but it doesn't have much of a story. It is not boring, but it is not very interesting. The acting is really good, especially by Bucky Larson. It is not a good movie. It is more about love and it is about the characters. The movie is worth seeing because it is really good for being an independent film. It is not the best film, but it is better than the average movie.

Love it or hate it, a complete and total shame that the film of a couple of talents that has brought a revolution in graphic novel comics and screenplays should have been such a disappointment. When a film is this bad, it shows a lack of funds, perhaps director, screenwriter and other similar staff. The film actually tried very hard to convey the dark tone of the comics, but the worst part is it doesn't quite do it. The characters are not the same characters from the comics and it's all in colors, characters doing what they do in the story, not the same as their comics. Some story elements, like the drug addiction, are explained in the first five minutes and after that you can't find yourself involved in the story at all. The romance with Claire is not a good part, it has the same level as Love Actually in how uninteresting it is. The action and tension are both lacking and the budget seems to have been spent on the looks of the film rather than the good script and the action scenes. Daniel Blake was a brilliant performer, but not here. I really wish to see him give a real performance in a real movie, not in a dumb film like this, he had a really good performance in the first half of this film and I was a bit concerned how he would continue with this role in the second half of the film. He does a decent job, but it's very difficult to believe he really can play such a complex character. When the action ends, the film suddenly ends. Well, there is no action after the end credits roll. Overall, I'm giving this film a 6, because the first half of the film was very good and because the second half is really a complete waste of time, even if it had been about thirty minutes shorter.

THE DEVIL'S REJECTS (1993) director's cut is certainly not the worst of the 3 versions of the film. You won't believe how far off the mark this film is in terms of what it should be. The director's cut takes a great deal of time to describe the events that happened in the film, but the truth is much more fun to watch. The director's cut gives you a much clearer view of the events that happened in the film, and also more fun to watch as well. The film also has a much better introduction to the cast, with better actors and their backgrounds. The actor who plays Marduk, takes a great deal of experience and drama, and while there isn't a lot of time spent on him, I personally loved seeing him as the father and leading role in the film. The other actors are okay, although I didn't enjoy them much. Of course, the film also has a lot of intense scenes and the fight scenes are a lot of fun, though the only thing that I found to be a little weird about the film is that at one point in the film, one of the characters is being stabbed in the back. It is at this point, the film goes into a plot where the original short was so important, that the film would be up for over 30 awards. The way the film is presented doesn't really fit with the movie. When you look at the version that is presented, you don't really see the full power of the film, and it is somewhat boring. It isn't the worst of the films, but it isn't really the best either. It is, though, a pretty good film, and I recommend it to fans of the original short, as well as fans of Stephen King's movies.
