I think that Ken Loach has produced another winner here – it is a storyof a Eric Bishop (Steve Evets), a postman going though some hard timesand not being able to cope with life in general – with a painfulbreak-up behind him, a dysfunctional home life, step kids that ignorehim, he decides ...
Man Utd fans will obviously love this and I'm not a Utd fan. However ihave to say this is the most entertaining film of Ken Loach's sinceBread & Roses nearly a decade ago. It has a good story and isrealistically acted by a cast of unknowns and semi-familiar faces. Fora film about a legendary and ico...
Don't believe a word of the hype. Looking for Eric is not a Ken Loachcomedy. It is, in several places, a very funny film indeed. But it isnot a comedy. At a far fetched push you might call it a rom-com or asocial satire. Me? I just think it's another brilliant Loachian movie.(Can you believe he's be...
I went to see this film as a colleague said it was good. I pretty muchhad no other idea what it was when I entered the theater.The story is well narrated, put together in the "show not tell" method.You figure it out as you go along.I found it fascinating on many levels. The character that Cantona pl...
From 'Cathy Come Home' to 'Kes through to 'Raining Stones' to 'The WindThat Shakes The Barley' the constant element of a Ken Loach film isstriking realism. Everything is so natural, so ordinary that you stoplooking at a story unfold on a big screen but look out at life going onthrough a massive wind...
I found this film extremely good fun. The plot was a little surreal,but it held you. The acting was excellent and there were lots oflaughs. Cantona acquits himself perfectly respectably. As usual withKen Loach, there was a bleaker side to the fun and the realities ofordinary people's lives were not ...
I've just been to see an advance screening of this film, without reallyknowing what it was about, other than obviously Eric Cantona would bein it. I'll admit from the outset that I am a Manchester United fan andwas looking forward to seeing Eric on screen. It would have been worthit if only to see s...
A quintessentially English film, but with a Gallic twist, this storyshould appeal to an audience far beyond the denizens of the StretfordEnd. In essence, a modest morality tale, a first half which fadesdangerously is kick started by a plot development which sees thingsthrough to a happy, and satisfy...
The recent World Cup in South Africa brought everyone's attention tosoccer (which most of the world calls football), but movies such as"Bend It Like Beckham" and "Looking for Eric" show why we should paymore attention to it. The Fall's Steve Evets plays down-on-his-luckpostman Eric Bishop, who in hi...
Being an armchair Manchester United fan now for almost 20 years i had alot of interest in seeing Ken Loachs' film when i first got wind ofit.The presence of Eric Cantona still looms large over Old Trafford andindeed fans still sing his name to this day.In a way,watching LookingFor Eric made me fall ...
The last Ken Loach film I saw was "The Wind that Shakes the Barley"which was a disappointingly simplistic historical epic. He's best whenhe drops the partisan politics and focuses on the lives of ordinary,flawed people trying to live their lives in harsh working classenvironments, and he's back to t...
Being a great admirer of Ken Loach, I'm sorry to say that this may behis first failure. The film is about the postman, who drinks too much,uses pot, get no respect from his stepsons and misses his old love verymuch.Then, Eric Cantona turns up, out of a poster, and becomes the postman'slife coach. Th...
This is definitely one of my favorite movies EVER!It really rocked my world. As a fan of Cantona, I had to watch this movie. And, damn, he isimpressive. And the movie for itself is amazing.The history behind the main character, Eric Bishop, is the historybehind all of us. He is lost, his family is p...
In 'Looking for Eric' Loach takes a look at the complicated life of adown on his luck unhappy postman, Eric Bishop. He desperately strugglesto cope with his dysfunctional home, ignorant kids and a sad breakupbut all seems hopeless until he finds a way in the form of formerfootball player Eric Canton...
Postman Eric is pretty much at the end of his tether. His partner hasnot come back home despite her being released from prison over twomonths ago, leaving him looking after two teenage stepsons, neither ofwhom respect him or listen to him and appear to be heading down thewrong road in life. His own ...
I'm a huge fan of Ken Loach, but LOOKING FOR ERIC felt forced (and abit 'rang-in', performance wise) I'm fully aware that Loach was goingfor a more fantasy approach with this movie. But when nothing at all'rings true' how are we supposed to know where the fantasy begins, andwhat makes it so fantasti...
Let me start off by saying: I'm not a Cantona fan nor a Manchesterdevil. My interest is placed solely on the artistic relevance of thissimplistic, almost ascetic, piece of filmmaking. By far the the mostpoignant film about football, as well as possibly the best movie in the2009 Cannes selection.Eric...
Looking for Eric is a blend of comedy, fantasy, philosophy, and socialrealism that breaks the record for the most "F" words ever used in amotion picture. If it wasn't supposed to be a feel-good comedy thatasks you to suspend logic, I would also suggest a "P" word –preposterous. Directed by the ...
I have been an fan of the films of Ken Loach since I saw 'HiddenAgenda' some years back. In the years since he first directed films fortelevision,working up to his first feature film,'Poor Cow',up untilrecent,he has painted a portrait of the English blue collar workingclass,most times unvarnished (t...
In this British film directed by Ken Loach, Sreve Evets plays EricBishop, a middle aged postman, a single parent with two unruly stepsonsby a wife who had left him, whose life seems to be going downhill. Ericrecently bumped into his old flame, Lily, his first wife, whom hehadn't met since he left he...
Quite a funny movie, tender and wise. Ken Loach is somehow derided inthe UK as a Trotskyist always playing the anti-Thatcher role but thistime he surprised everyone with this comedy. Politics has maybe driventhis story as well but in the context of people's lives. In this plot astrong sense of human...
Dear God, how did they pull this off? The warped genius footballerCantona and the godfather of the down and dirty social commentary.But what a genuinely heartwarming slice of pathos and skill.This little film inspires and depresses in equal measure - howdesperate life can get, how tortured one man c...
Recap: Life is just not easy, to put it mildly. Especially for Eric, alowly paid postman, with to troublesome teenage kids and decades oldguilty conscience after having run out on his fiancé that just hadgiven birth to their child. And finally he just snaps. His friendswants to help, and buys a sel...
Loach's Looking for Eric combines some of the best work he's previouslydone in regards to a realistic, low-level set aesthetic combined withsome universal themes of contemporary middle aged men in crisis, allthe while filtered through the light comedy and crime drama genres.It's to the film's great ...
