Ken Loach's latest Cannes entry, the tale of a family unraveling under the pressure of their precarious jobs, takes aim at the gig economy dividing politicians and workers the world over. The searing drama showed the Palme D'Or-winning veteran British director to be in fine form, some critics said.The film builds suspense as viewers will Ricky to stop -- highlighting the paradox of a labor system where, in theory, contractors enjoy the freedom to do as they please.In the age of ride-hailing services like Uber and food delivery firms that rely on contractors, others observed, the movie lands its punches well.
