The movie is not recommended, unless you want to see Meryl Streep once again nail it. She got the voice dead on and a Thatcher movie without that voice would be a failure.
It spent a lot of time dealing with Thatcher's decline into Alzheimer's, which had nothing to do with her public life and hardly of interest to most people.
It's just odd that both she and Reagan got it.

Of course, Reagan had the onset while he was president so that realization was a bit shocking.

I'd love to read your review.
Do you think the movie was biased?
Or, do you just get mad when you see her face lol.

No part at all. It actually makes a lot of sense considering who wrotte it.

It was never a surprise for me to know that the Western political right represented by Maggie Thatcher and others looked with sympathetic eyes the neo-liberal economic reforms pushed by force and anti-democratic means in chile during Pinochet's dictatorship.

In the same vein, one shouldn't be surprised that an important Western media outlet like the WSJ wishes Egypt's generals to follow Pinochet's example with his shock and anti-democratic economic policies. After all, dictatorships have never been a big problem for them when they happen in third world nations populated by brown people.

Re: Maggie Thatcher died today

and this is why neoliberal economics and authoritarism go hand in hand, ladies and gentlemen:



Coincidentally, the type of the ideas that "free media" like the Wall Street Journal wants Egypt to follow

And then the small details. If a candidate appeared in Britain in a jacket made from the Union Jack and a beret, the electorate would fall about laughing at him.
Venezuelan TV has only 5-8% of its country's audience and a lot of the media opposed Chavez especially the written press.

It's a shame that right-wing conservatives and the US just cannot accept that Venezuela has many socialists who have benefitted under Chavez' administration and have elected Maduro freely and fairly.
