Critic Reviews for The Delivered (Fanny Lye Deliver'd)
Flawed, but it is a film with a singular vision on screen...I went in deeply suspicious of it, but the moments that work are impressive enough...
It's a film that always looks to plough its own furrow: chewing over biblical text one minute, unleashing lurid splashes of violence the next.
Peake is terrific throughout, and the dreamlike mood lingers after the credits roll, a story made to chew on, told amid the mists of an England briefly up for grabs.
While Maxine Peake shines in the lead role of a downtrodden woman finding her own voice, all aspects of Thomas Clay's gritty, immersive historical drama blaze with visceral authenticity.
It is a film which follows its own instincts and is happy to retain (and proudly display) a few ragged edges, and it's all the more interesting for it.
