UK CHRONICLES: LONDON/ ROBINSO UK CHRONICLES: LONDON/ ROBINSO

Architect-turned-director Patrick Keiller crafted a pair of innovative, droll    documentaries in which two fictional characters--the narrator and                Robinson--explore the pretty surface and nasty underbelly of England. Neither    documentary nor fiction, London (1994, 82 mins.) is a provocative film   essay and a kind of travelogue. It chronicles a year in the life of England's  capital through the eyes of Robinson, whose literary reflections and           historical speculations are voiced by an unnamed, unseen narrator. Then in the   companion film, Robinson in Space (1997, 78 mins.), Keiller presents the country's familiar historic landmarks and grand estates, but also the suburban malls, industrial parks, landfills, factories, and phone booths choking the    landscape. "Robinson advances Keiller's claim to be the liveliest spar  k  of the British independent scene, and the wittiest film essayist since the     early Peter Greenaway" (The Times). Narrated by Paul Scofield.           Patrick Keiller---Great Britain---1994/1997---160 mins.
