Taking Liberties

The Bigger Picture Truth To Power
Director: Chris Atkins | Countries of production: United Kingdom | Year: 2007 | Length: 100 min
Language: English

Taking Liberties is a documentary about the erosion of civil liberties in the United Kingdom, and increase of surveillance under the government of Tony Blair since 1997.

Filmmaker Chris Atkins uses a mix of animation, news footage and interviews to demonstrate his belief that Labour has overreacted to the terror threat, using it as an excuse to bring in a series of curbs on personal freedom.

there’s something exhilarating about this thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile docu-blast against Tony Blair’s insidious diminution of native British liberties.
