‘The film utilises a traditionally seductive theatrical image at the outset which is subsequently redefined in the concrete terms of projection and screen…Initially a man is seen dancing in a pub with a pint of beer on his head. This is followed by a series of travelling shots along a seafront. The imagery and illusion of spatial depth are subsequently challenged by superimposed texts.. Essentially, a rearrangement of priorities…’

David Hall, 1977.
