"Robinson In Space" - Keiller - Scofield - (1997) - BBC2 sequel to "London" [DVDrip(mpeg)]
A film by Patrick Keiller.
Narrated by Paul Scofield.
The sequel to "London", which I uploaded previously. http://thebox.bz/details.php?id=61190
"Breathtaking images in an intellectually exciting film that makes us think afresh about the world."
"Hypnotic and absorbing."
In "Robinson In Space", the character of Robinson from the earlier film "London" is commissioned to undertake a study of the 'problem' of England. Patrick Keiller's immaculately framed images and sly deadpan narration take the viewer on an unpredictable exploration of the cultural and economic landscape.
This is a documentary... but not quite. There are the two off-screen characters: Robinson and his friend the narrator, both present in Paul Scofield's laconic voice-over.
Unlike "London", this film isn't just set in London, but moves out a bit around the country... there are scenes from Dartford, Didcot, Dover and other towns in the South East not beginning with 'd', and also Manchester, Bristol, Doncaster, Whitby, Sellafield, Hull and more.
This was a BBC2 documentary (wheras "London" was Channel 4). Ripped from the BFI release.
Incidentally, "Robinson In Space" makes heavy use of the music from the old movie "A Matter Of Life And Death".
Will be slow at first, speeding up substantially overnight.
