ROBINSON IN RUINS (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Patrick Keiller
Patrick Keiller's latest essay-film in his Robinson series (London and Robinson in Space) combines ironic, witty denunciation of society's domination by markets with homage to the wonders of the biosphere.
Newly released from prison, mysterious would-be scholar Robinson has been haunting the Oxfordshire countryside with a ciné camera. A few months later, film cans and a notebook are discovered in a derelict caravan: the results of his search for the origins of capitalist catastrophe in the English landscape. Researchers assemble the material as a film, narrated by their institution's co-founder (voiced by Vanessa Redgrave).

Top customer reviews
Keiller's films are not for everyone (they are fiercely intellectual to the point where they can easily alienate an audience, and can be very difficult to concentrate on if you are not in the right mood), but for those who understand his political agenda and are open to his obscure literary, cultural, and scientific references, his work can be profoundly rewarding. However, I repeat; Patrick Keiller is very far from being an easily accessible filmmaker, so if you try this, do so with a very open mind.
