Movie Reviews

Times (UK) - 8/10 by Kate MuirAn early gem from the social realist movement.
Little White Lies - 8/10 by David JenkinsMoody, poetic and artful. Another side of Ken Loach.
Time Out - 8/10 by Tom HuddlestonA time-capsule character study of great warmth and compassion.
Time Out - 7/10 by Geoff AndrewNot a patch upon Loach's best work, largely because he falls into all the usual traps of kitchen sink realism.
Guardian - 6/10 by Richard RoudIf I hadn't seen Poor Cow with my own eyes, I would never have believed that a film with so much to offer could ultimately be so downright awful.
Monthly Film Bulletin - 6/10 by MFB CriticsNot even Carol White as Joy, glowing with vitality and beautifully modulating the heroine's different moods, can make of Poor Cow more than a superficial, slightly patronising incursion into the nether realms of social realism.
Total Film - 6/10 by James MottramAs a portrait of a struggling mum it's spot-on.
Film4 - 4/10 by Clark CollisAlthough Loach's heart is not so much in the right place as nailed to it, there is no doubt that this makes for gruelling viewing, lacking the glimpses of humour he would show in later work.
User Review - 8/10 by Les ERuns more like a documentary with an ab-lib script about a young mothers life. Shows the other side of the swinging 60's in all it's grim reality. All the leads are super and seem very natural. Bindon was a gangster in real life so had a bit of a head start. Right up there with the best of British from that era.
User Review - 8/10 by Simon DLovely working class docudrama from Ken Loach. The Donovan music dates a bit but this is a smart, observant, and lyrical film.
