British cinema needs more ambition, says Noel Clarke
Speaking to Digital Spy, the director and actor said he agrees with Ken Loach, who recently said big budget blockbusters are taking over cinema in the UK.
"I definitely agree with him [Ken Loach]. I'm not sick of them showing Hollywood films, they have to show them. They're the films that get big audiences but I think British films need to be put on the market as well."
"I guess the thing I think slightly differently to him is that you can't just make any old British film and expect to it to be alongside a Hollywood blockbuster. Cinemas at the end of the day have to make money."
Clarke's latest film 22.214.171.124, which stars Emma Roberts, Tamsin Egerton, Ophelia Lovibond and Shanika Warren-Markland, is out now.
It tells the story of four friends who, after a chance encounter with some diamond thieves, are left fearing for their lives.
