I recently reviewed the Maggie biopic The Iron Lady for Lost in the Multiplex:
Phyllida Lloyd’s Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady has managed the commendable feat of managing to displease both wings of the political spectrum. The left feel it humanises the former Primer Minister too much and whitewashes over the true impact of her policies. The right meanwhile feels it is out to embarrass and belittle Thatcher by focusing on and exaggerating her struggle with dementia. Both sides’ arguments perhaps have some validity but the point they are both missing is this, on a purely cinematic level and setting all political allegiances aside, the film is just plain boring.
