David Cameron praised Meryl Streep's performance in The Iron Lady as "fantastic", but questioned the decision to make the film while Baroness Thatcher is alive.
The film portrays the former prime minister's premiership, and then her suffering with dementia in later life.
Mr Cameron told Radio Four: "You can't help wondering, why do we have to have this film now?
"It's really a film about ageing, dementia, rather than a wonderful prime minister."
"My sense was a great piece of acting, a really staggering piece of acting, but a film I wish they could have made another day."
