London

London by Patrick Keiller

The link above is to a film called London by Patrick Keiller. At its simplest, it’s a first-person narration of a man and his companions journeys across London. Presented as a single, disembodied voice speaking over cinematic snapshots of the city it is perhaps as literary as a film can be. For some London may appear as a dystopian slideshow presentation but its juxtaposition of language and image, fiction and reality is a great example of how writing might intersect with architecture.
