Exhaustive and fascinating depiction of the UK's capital city, presented as a literary journey through the city. Neither feature nor documentary, 'London' was filmed over a period of twelve months in 1992 by Patrick Keiller, during a time which saw the re-election of John Major, the continuation of the IRA bombing campaign, the ERM crisis and the beginning of the fall of the House Of Windsor. The narration of the fictional Robinson (read by Paul Scofield) and the images of the city give a compelling insight into nature of London at the end of the twentieth century; a time when despite technological advancements the capital has declined through poverty, local government cuts and planning debacles to a depressing state more reminiscent of Victorian England.
