Product Overview

Architect-turned-director Patrick Keiller returns with an eccentric documentary that brings out a side of his city that few tourists will ever visit. Also returning is Academy-Award -winning actor Paul Scofield as the mysterious narrator, who is back in London after a seven-year absence to tour the city with his former lover Robinson. The pair visits historical sites associated with such famous authors as Poe and Baudelaire, only to discover pollution, urban blight, and IRA bomb scares have changed the flavor of their beloved London forever. Wry, deadpan humor, ironic commentary on social politics, and immaculately composed images make this ideological guided tour of England s capital city an indispensable companion piece to the unforgettable ROBINSON IN SPACE.System Requirements:Running Time 82 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource Jigsaw Lounge
Review London's running time isn't long, but by the end the viewer will feel that there isn't much in this city of nine million that we haven't been shown Ð thanks to Keiller's penetrating, quizzical, endlessly curious and erudite observations, his film is simultaneous piercingly specific and all-encompassingly universal. London transcends its self-imposed rigid geographical and chronological limits to push cinema into genuinely fresh territory Ð and ends, brilliantly, on a poetic note of unexpected, magical, hard-won grace.
