Film critic Andy Kellman celebrated the release of Finisterre (2002), the sixth album by London supra-pop trio Saint Etienne, as a return to the surprise they had produced a decade earlier, when they busted into the scene with the dazzling Foxbase Alpha (1992). “Just like back then –Kellman wrote– the record’s flow is delightfully disjointed and apparently made of tangents.” Directed by Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans, Finisterre is a documentary supported on that record, and is about a love letter to London with everything love letters should have. It’s a psycho-geographic trip from the suburbs of East Croydon to all of its possible centers (both famous and secret), which actually looks deliciously disjointed and is made of tangents. And for that reason, for its luminous and relentless melancholy, it turns out to be the best portrait that has ever been made of a city that has too many portraits. Finisterre is the emotional map London had been waiting, and that’s a lot to say. MPSection: Britannia Lado B: Heavenly Films
