Peterloo

Description
It is one of the most influential stories in history, recounting the events surrounding the famous Peterloo massacre of 1819. The Peterloo massacre was a start to reform, but a peaceful pro-democracy demonstration turned out to be a dangerous and painful thing for the people. The demonstration began in St. Peter's Square in Manchester but turned into one of the bloodiest and most famous events in British history. It may have been very dangerous, with hundreds of victims and dead in search of reform, poverty and corruption.

It seems perverse that a film of such length should find no home for so many of its director's assets. Detailed character-work, complex domestic relationships, humour: these are elements that would have made the picture engaging.

The authenticity is immersive, even if the historical exposition occasionally feels like prep for an exam no one's warned you about.

It is beautifully shot and the costume department have a real eye for detail... but despite the sheer drama of these historical events and their relevance to today's fractured world, Peterloo fails to ignite real passion and anger.

Leigh's passion for the material seems to have led him to approach it from an angle more pedagogic than artistic.

You can feel Leigh's fury glowering off the screen through the entire last act, but that fury does the film and the filmmaker little service.

With this richly intelligent, passionate movie Mike Leigh has fought a brilliant rearguard action on history's political battlefield.

Peterloo feels a little too much like an agenda is being pushed, but this is nevertheless a powerful, pertinent piece of work.

Those with the patience and attention span are rewarded; the last 30 minutes is perhaps the most visceral filmmaking Leigh has ever pulled off...

It's a stately, explicitly rhetorical paean to the people - setting the past in stone while also lashing out at a present-day political order.
