The London Nobody Knows

Here are a few images from a little filmic oddity which I finally got round to watching last night. Based on Geoffrey Fletcher’s book of the same title,"The London Nobody Knows" follows actor James Mason on a psychogeographical walk through the neglected, hidden and seamy streets of post war London. Infused with period charm,the film depicts a strange netherworld of melancholic meths drinkers,tilted streets,eel soup,goldfish swimming in Victorian public toilets and the odd piece of electronic library music by composer Wilfred Burns (see youtube clip below). Lovely.
