Nigel Farage Gets His Life Back online movie review - After Brexit
Maybe we should have had Kevin Bishop as Nigel Farage singing pro Nazi songs which the real Farage apparently used to do in his school days. After all this scourge of Europe loves things Germanic, even his wife hails from there.
This mockumentary traces Farage's life away from front line politics which mainly consisted of going down to the pub drinking and smoking, something he did in his political days. He never seemed to have attended the European Parliament too much, a position that he was elected to hold. Maybe there is not a good bar in Strasbourg.
Here we see Nigel having banter with his pub landlord, drinking beer with patriotic or heritage names, watching 1970s comedies with bad stereotypes, doing the crossword, rejecting reality television offers unless they put an extra zero at the end, making jokes that only he laughs at and swearing at the Biased Broadcasting Corporation.
We do not see his wife but we do see his embarrassed look when his supporters tell him that they understand what he really meant when he said 'we want our country back' (the Nazi singing, anti foreigner stuff has always been inside him.)
The trouble is despite Bishop's efforts playing Farage it really was not that funny. Farage is a character you can let rip with satire, maybe this was meant to be bittersweet. I got bored by the end.
