London on Film with the BFI: London (1994), Film Screening (BFI, Certificate PG)
Patrick Keiller's imaginative and highly original film documents a journey undertaken by the unseen 'researcher' Robinson and his similarly unseen companion, the film's narrator (voiced by Paul Scofield).
London is a journal of 1992, the year of John Major's re-election, IRA bombs and the first crack in the House of Windsor. Scathing reflections on the recent past are enlivened by offbeat humour and wide-ranging literary anecdotes.
Also available on BFI DVD/Blu-ray instore at Foyles
