Dangerous Game, A (PG)


The critical consensus

Baxter weaves all this together into a fascinating and fairly damning indictment, not so much of golf, but of the arrogant culture of exclusivity that has overtaken it worldwide. This is a real Scottish horror film.

Baxter (right) has a talent for getting under the skin of the evasive and the self-aggrandising.

****(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 07/09/2014

The film bubbles over with anger, but it's a little too righteous and one-sided for its own good.

Is this doc supposed to be a general anti-golf expose or part two of Trumped? Still, it’s rousing stuff.

***(*)(*)Leslie Felperin, The Guardian, 11/09/2014

Baxter's film-making style is similar to that of Louis Theroux and Jon Ronson. He's playful and mischievous but never loses sight of the bigger points he is trying to make about the abuse of power and democracy by golf-loving kleptocrats.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 12/09/2014

If this follow-up lacks the personal focus of the original, it makes up for it in terms of global context, with talking heads such as Robert F Kennedy Jr proving valuable allies in the search for truth.
