Product Description:

Patrick Keiller's fascinating, inventive 1994 film walks the line between fiction and documentary, as the mysterious and unseen narrator, Robinson (voiced by Paul Scofield), takes viewers through one year in London, adding literate commentary and history lessons throughout the proceedings. Architect-turned-director Keiller made a companion film in 1997's ROBINSON IN SPACE, a unique and unusual travel guide that takes viewers on a remarkable tour around England. Mixing up footage of historic sites with offbeat glimpses of more commonly found objects such as industrial landscapes and shopping malls, Keiller aims to show the breadth of diversity present in English culture, and Scofield provides a frequently amusing commentary throughout.

Product Description:

Architect-turned-director Patrick Keiller crafted a pair of unique documentaries in which two fictional characters–the Narrator and Robinson–explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of England. Centuries-old structures share the screen with ugly industrial parks and malls. Signs of decay exist next to sites of busy industrial activity. The pointed observations, quotes from famous authors, and fascinating facts prove the perfect commentary for the carefully composed images. Profound yet amusing meditations on the state of the modern world.
