TERROR AND MAGNIFICENCE – THE FILM – with John Harle, Iain Sinclair and Keith Critchlow

‘Terror and Magnificence’ was a short film for a series on BBC2 called ‘The Score’.

Directed by Bob Bentley, it features insight into the inspiration that Christ Church, Spitalfields gave the composer/performer, John Harle, in the composition of the piece ‘Terror and Magnificence’. Writer Iain Sinclair (http://www.iainsinclair.org.uk/) and Professor of Architecture Keith Critchlow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Cr…) contribute with fascinating detail about the structure of the building, the neighbourhood and the overwhelming presence of this huge-scale Hawksmoor church, built after The Great Fire of London

Patience (After Sebald)

“Diehard Sebaldians may seek to retrace the footsteps that formed the basis of WG Sebald’s meditative masterpiece The Rings of Saturn. Or they may choose to watch Grant Gee’s film tribute instead. Patience (After Sebald) takes as its fulcrum the German expatriate’s category-defying memoir-cum-history, travelogue-cum-novel – which was published in 1995 and is considered by many to be his greatest work – and it attempts to recreate the book’s physical and mental landscape. An ambitious undertaking, it only partly succeeds.

Excerpts from the novel are beautifully read by Jonathan Pryce (one is almost hypnotised by that richly textured, mellifluous voice), and talking-head contributors include artist Tacita Dean, writer and psychoanalyst Adam Phillips (who provides by far the most interesting insights), psychogeographer Iain Sinclair and poet Andrew Motion. The film therefore is also part appreciation, part lit crit and part unadulterated fandom.”
