Set in 60’s London. Working class girl’s desperate voyage through relationships
One of the best of the ‘kitchen-sinks’. Fantastic views of London and invaluable snippets of working class life of the 60’s. Loach’s eye seems to capture everything, yet makes no judgment – a taste of things to come. As with ‘Kes’, ‘Riff-raff’ and ‘Sweet Sixteen’, it serves as a cinematic social history of Britain. Carol White is completely convincing, you love her, fancy her, want to take care of her, but hold your head at her self-destructive decisions and still follow her in some vain hope. Well backed up by Terence Stamp, ( fresh off ‘The collector’, also catch ‘The Hit’ ) and a plethora of English faces ( all looking very young ). Pefectly set to Donovan’s dulcet tones. Stamp sings ‘Yellow is the color’, in a lovely scene, ending with him saying, ” Getting better, ain’t I ” ( song also used in ‘The rules of Attraction’ – I think ) Watch Carol Whites screen mum getting ready to ‘go out and get a bloke’, putting on her false eye-lashes to the sound of ‘Rosie’ on the radio – priceless. A treasure for anyone who was around at the time and a reminder of how good life is now in England. Incidentally Soderburgh used clips from ‘Poor cow’ in ‘The Limey’.
This was a disappointing Ken Loach film and the worst of his that I have seen. The story, I felt, was dull. A woman with no prospects takes up with various criminals in order live a bit of a ‘fancy’ lifestyle. She still lives in squalor but now and again she gets a nice necklace.
The thing with Loach is, his films are usually so wonderfully shot and acted in a way that makes them incredibly realistic and almost a documentary that they are compulsive viewing, even when the story is less interesting. But with Poor Cow the acting felt more theatrical and less realistic (particularly Terence Stamp) and as a document of our history I didn’t feel it anywhere near as interesting, important or intriguing as Kes, Riff Raff, Raining Stones, Cathy Come Home or even Looks and Smiles.
