London (1994)

Paul Scofield narrates this humorous and insightful odyssey around our capital city.
In Keiller’s tantalising first feature, an unseen narrator (Scofield) tells of research into English Romanticism carried out in 1992 by his mysterious (and likewise unseen) friend Robinson – research that has the pair trying to grasp what went wrong with London. Himself an architect, Keiller charts a flâneur’s odyssey around the city that embraces political satire, historical fact, literary allusion, urban myth and much offbeat humour.
