UKIP: The First 100 Days full movie review - A very controversial political mockumentary
This is a mockumentary that portrays what would happen if an anti- immigration, anti-EU party would win the generals elections in the UK in 2015.
The show is very good at showing what anti-immigration and anti-EU claims may actually lead to. Its content is certainly highly sensitive for the UK as the elections are coming.
It has been criticised for using real footage of politicians, though I don't really find it reasonable because it is simply presenting an opinion on how the future would be. At no where, it claims to present any facts or anything and it would not be a mockumentary if it had such claims.
It presents a good picture where people can see the larger effects of Brexit rather than just immigrants coming from other EU countries. It also portrays well how "cracking down on immigration" does not just mean immigrants from the EU but the whole world, although many people somehow naively believes (or presents it like) that UKIP will just single out European immigrants and does not make any difference on other immigrants. Of course visitors in the UK already realise how the visa processes even for short visits are becoming unnecessarily daunting. The mockumentary may have also emphasised the further troubles the long term students in the UK experience because of all the red tape of getting a visa and being a foreign student in the UK. Well that is what is happening now but since the subject of the film is the future they may portray the collapse of the UK's world famous education system as well. Hopefully, if the film does not face any censorship perhaps they can put it in the sequels.
