Ken Loach - en politiskt medveten regissör - realism och ideolgi i de brittiska samtidsskildringarna Riff-Raff, Raining stones och Mitt namn är Joe
1999 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The British director, Ken Loach, is famous for his working class portraits and that he always has devoted himself to people who’s at the margins of society. The primary purpose of this study is to try to answer the question: Do the realistic ambitions in Ken Loach’s contemporary portraits Riff-Raff, Raining stones and My name is Joe get damaged by his political point of view? In a qualitative study like this, the independent analytical line of argument stands in the focus, nevertheless, with a certain support of literature that’s treating the object of this study. Loach’s stylistic realism investigates, where characteristic elements like actual locales, documentary atmosphere, natural acting and open narrative aesthetics, rest upon the Neorealistic tradition. In a way, Loach’s realism of contents reflects the scourge of unemployment, where social aspects like poverty, black labour and drug abuse are distinguishing. The primary films can also be seen as a reaction against our age, where Loach’s socialistic viewpoint visualises in the stereotyped characterisation and in some politically over-explicit scenes. Riff-Raff and Raining stones describes the class struggle in progress, while My name is Joe rather outlines a static post-modern state of society.
