  ,

Stonebridge Park was prompted by the length and articulation of a footbridge over railway lines in northwest London, the resulting film comprising moving-camera footage accompanied by fictional narration written later. In the first part, the narrator describes events that led to his robbing a former employer, the camera meanwhile walking above a nearby road junction. In the second part, he recounts his panic following the crime, while the walking camera reconstructs his escape route. A final caption reports what happened after that. – P.K.‘…seeking flowers of evil, not on the rain-spattered pavements of Montparnasse, but somewhere along the Harrow Road.’ – Sheila Johnston, Time Out‘…a riveting combination of formal-concrete cinema and glassy-eyed schizo-lyricism: cold, hard-edge, noir.’ – Raymond Durgnat
