He growled: \"We have done all this to speak to his companions for himself --
We called the kitchen sink realists and then we went back and talked about what the gentleman was then
Schlesinger\'s latest movie Falcon and snowman is an American spy thriller. \'\'Fair enough.
If artists go back in their footsteps, they will not grow.
The kitchen sink is no longer a convenient symbol of social inequality and family stress in the UK.
In the 40 years since Obama took office, Britain has undergone irreversible changes.
Schlesinger, Lindsay Anderson, Jack Clayton, Carrell Rez and Tony Richardson were inspired by literary role models from angry young people, and was produced by the ancient national film a series of social awareness films describing regional work

However, advertising has not changed the pace of British life as quickly as the political environment, and in the past few years several talented directors have appeared painfully --
Inject realistic drama into the core of work-and middle-class Britain.
They include Gary Oldman\'s mouth-free, Tim Ross\'s war zone, Karin Adler\'s under-skin, and two Lynne Ramsey, which will be released here this fall. \"ratcatcher\" and \"Romeo Blas\'s Room\" by Shane Meadows.
Another \"Wonderland\" directed by Michael winterbutton will open on Friday.

Rocky\'s work has always rooted politics in individuals and cannot ignore the influence of domestic drama, such as his \"Madame, Madame\" on \"no mouth\" and \"war zone (
Especially because actor Ray Winstone portrayed the brutal father image in these three characters).
There are traces of \"Lady, Lady\" and early Loach movies in \"magical land\" and \"under skin\", such as \"upward connection\" and \"family life \".

Winterbutton\'s Wonderland was launched on a weekend in contemporary London in November, depicting a trajectory of alienation, loneliness and despair.

When we spoke at the Sundance Film Festival in January, winterbutton was reluctant to acknowledge the impact of specific realism on \"Wonderland\", which premiered in the United States.
\"I didn\'t consciously imitate the realism of the kitchen sink after 60,\" he said . \"
The film\'s core figure happened to be living in the parliament building in southern London, struggling financially.
I\'m more interested in exploring the emotional connection between people in a family that rarely meets, and while capturing the noise and excitement of London and trying to keep your head on the surface of the water, there are 7 million people around you who you don\'t know about their lives.
You sit next to the subway, live in an apartment next door to them and walk through them in the street, but you never thought there would be any connection with them.
On the surface, \"wonderland\" is like Mr. Loach\'s films --a \'\'Riff-
For example, Raff, or \"someone who rains \"---
But more careful research shows that its style goes beyond the realism of the Loya documentary.
Like \"No in the mouth\" and \"Under the Skin\", the \"Magical Land\" is carried by a flyon-the-
Accuse Wall with a disturbing composition.
The scenes of Debbie\'s son and his dad leaving the football match, and the scenes of Nadiya and Molly\'s boyfriend in Soho, all make the metropolis a jungle that threatens humanity.
It is not completely unexposed.
Winterbutton\'s film photographer Sean Bobbit picked lonely people in the crowd, which made us curious about their story.
But he did something.
Loach will never use time
Time-lapse photography, he turned the Soho crowd into an inhuman mess moving at a distorted speed, covered by an alternate sad Michael Neiman score.
\"For me, if a movie expresses what\'s real, it\'s real . \"
Said winterbutton.
\"But I don\'t think there is an objective way to say that one movie is real, and the other is not real.
Wonderland is a naturalist film in most respects.
One of the things I want to do in style is that there are moments in it where we not only look at the details, but also try to evoke how people feel about the inner life, desires and dreams of the characters.
That\'s why I use my time.

This is naked in their reality, but more than threedimensional.
\"I\'m trying to think about the emotional core of every shot,\" Ms. Li said.
Said Ramsey recently.
\"I want to get the details that trigger the memory.
A lot of people like James looking at Margaret Anne\'s scabs because it\'s sexy and reminds them of the time when they often have scabs on their knees.
Although \"ratcatcher\" looks and feels like real life, but any idea that it is a \"reality\" movie is made conscious and unconscious by the fact that it seems to run on two intersection planes of reality

In the early days of the film, commission inspectors visited the untidy apartment at James\'s house and refused to give them a new home-
Typical hints about how the working class is habitually betrayed by the authorities who should help them.

It\'s not that his story about teenagers and young people who are emotionally or financially deprived does not apply universally. Mr.
Meadows\'s films, both lively and sharp, are shared with Mike Lee\'s fascination with personality quirks. Mr.
