Radio On (1979)
Dir. Christopher Petit

"We are the children of Fritz Lang and Werner von Braun. We are the link between the 20's and the 80's. All change in society passes through a sympathetic collaboration with tape recorders, synthesisers and telephones. Our reality is an electronic reality."

"1.1. DVD A guy drives around and sometimes talks to someone. He listens to good music and the cinematography is nice. Watching this film is good way to just drift into your own thoughts. To be clear, I don't mean that this film is so boring I couldn't concentrate. It's just that the main character's life is so basic and uneventful, I can see a bit of myself in him (which is a thing with many films of this kind). That makes me think about my own life and sort of pushes me to do something with m"

"2.11. On harmi, että Radio On on jäänyt elokuvana lähes täysin unholaan. Brittiläinen road movie sisältää aivan loistavan soundtrackin, joka koostuu lähinnä David Bowiesta ja Kraftwerkistä. Elokuvan päähenkilö lähtee selvittämään veljensä murhaa, ja murhahommeliin käytetään elokuvan 100-minuuttisesta kestosta ehkä kaksi minuuttia. Loput ajasta ajellaan rauhallisesti ympäri Brittein maaseutua, kohdataan tuon ajan ongelmia, jumitellaan ja pohditaan omaa olemassaoloa. Koko"

Another film that’s been on my want-to-watch list for quite a while. I only became aware of it about three years ago when my trusty DVD and Blu-Ray Review magazine announced the British Film Institute DVD release in time for the film’s 30th anniversary. A forgotten, British-German co-produced art film, it follows the journey (as clichéd as it sounds) of a man (David Beames) who travels from London to Bristol to investigate the death of his brother who, incidentall” read more
