On The Inside Looking Out
There are so many quotable lines in the voiceover of this gruesome Rank ‘Look At Life’ short, suggested by Mark Valentine, one hardly knows where to start. This one’s about London members’ clubs, and how depressing were they? How badly lit, dull and vaguely grubby everything was!
Watch any of these short films on YouTube, though, and you enter an alternative reality where mad people go on about the loveliness of London before immigrants arrived. Are they blind? Can they really not see how much more enriched our lives have become with other cultures breaking London’s straitjacket of school dinners and snoozing gents in armchairs?
