Cannes, The Formula and the Spotlight

Had a peak at a scene from Ken Loach’s film I, Daniel Blake that got the Cannes treatment. It displays how removed the festival is from anything to do with Cinema, which itself has cast aside this sort of filmmaking an eon ago. This scene here will demonstrate everything about the mentality of the establishment and the small society of filmmaking that equates itself with the magnitude that is Cinema. This scene is so utterly unusable, at any rate, for its formulaic structure, yielding nothing but a type of unrealistic performance for its pseudo neo-realist drama. Ken Loach has had his moment ages ago. Filmed theatre as a film, in my regard, is lower than a Hollywood Blockbuster.
