This is a powerfully affecting movie. Set in the U.K. it is pertinent for audiences in other countries as well. The movie is sober, infuriating and sad. Practicing medicine in the U.S., I can resonate with the maddening bureaucracy. Physicians are almost nowhere to be seen here. It seems like no one was running interference for Daniel Blake. That may well be the way it usually is.
