A good primer for those who know little of the troubles
26 March 2019 | by RudeArtAndDesign_ComSee all my reviews

I'm sure you've already read the description so I'll skip the part where I tell you what this documentary is about and just jump into whether it's any good or not.

Short answer, it's quite good. Maybe it's just me but, for my documentary dollar you just can't beat an autobiographical story. That is providing the subject is forthright and honest and we get that with I Dolours.

The aspect of this story that I find most fascinating is the source. Between 2001-06 Dolours Price and another Ex-IRA member told their stories to historians at Boston College under the strict confidence that the interview tapes remain sealed until their deaths. With the caveat in place Price holds nothing back in the telling of how and why she became a soldier in the IRA, the roles she played in the conflict and the resulting years she spent in prison as a result.

Honest storytelling from a first-hand source sets this film apart from most docs you may see on any subject matter. You can tell from her nothing short of courageous storytelling she believed she (and the IRA) was in the right in The Troubles. Thankfully the makers of this film never address the question of right or wrong. I think doing so would have lessened her tale.

There are of course two sides to this story and if you really want the whole story of the conflict in N. Ireland you'll have to search out other documentaries on the subject. But that being said this movie is a pretty decent primer for anyone that is unfamiliar with this chapter of history. Despite not coming from an impartial viewpoint the film-makers still do an admirable job of outlining the issues that led to The Troubles. Where this doc really shines in telling the story of why one particular woman would join that fight.
