Carry on Ken: A Look At the Work of Director Ken Loach
[quote]... a fascinating film that runs nearly 50 minutes and features an impressive array of figures talking about Loach and his work. At first, I thought this was going to be a standard tribute piece where everyone says nice things about the director and how great his films (particularly the one on the DVD) are. To my surprise, near the 15-minute mark, the documentary switches gears by showing Loach's life from his youth through his days of directing theater and working at the BBC, and finally turn to his work as a film director.
Among those who appear in the film are Robert Carlyle (who made Riff Raff and Carla's Song with Loach), Peter Mullan (star of Loach's My Name Is Joe), Brian Cox (star of Loach's Hidden Agenda), Murphy, Laverty, Ackroyd, Cunningham, and longtime Loach producer Rebecca O'Brien. All of them share some interesting and often amusing stories about Loach, who, it seems, has a penchant for surprising his actors on the set. Loach himself appears frequently in the feature, and it's very interesting to gain insight on his working methods. One key example is that he likes to have his crew be as invisible and in the background as possible, in order for the actors to forget they're in a film and behave more naturally. He will often shoot at far distances with long lenses to achieve this end. While it starts out rocky, Carry On Ken is a must-see for Loach fans.[/quote] Source
