Excerpt from the film ROBINSON IN SPACE.

Architect-turned-filmmaker Patrick Keiller expands and inventively redefines the documentary format in this unique "travelogue" of England. Using immaculately composed shots, he 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. A bit of witty and droll humor is introduced through the commentary of the offscreen narrator (veteran actor Paul Scofield), who travels, explores, and examines the country with his friend, Robinson. "Robinson advances Keiller's claim to be the liveliest spark of the British independent scene, and the wittiest film essayist since the early Peter Greenaway" (The Times).

Patrick Keiller---Great Britain---1997---78 mins.
