London - a film by Patrick Keiller
Narrated by Paul Scofield
Channel Four 1994
This imaginative and highly original film documents the journey undertaken by unseen 'researcher' Robinson and his similarly unseen companion, the film's narrator.
It is a journal, with beautiful and moving imagery, of London during the late Tory period, IRA bombings, cracks in the House Of Windsor, new buildings in the City, major recession...
...and, as such, is up to date right now.
I make mention here of experimental London film-maker John Smith - whose short films (such as The Black Tower, Slow Glass, Blight) are well worth seeking for. They must have influenced Keiller... in the use of the static camera for example, though John Smith is much less well known.
The sequel - Robinson in Space - has just been uploaded here: http://thebox.bz/details.php?id=62992
