New Thoughts On Old Things

[4] Andrew Kotting Hoi Polloi (1990)

This was also part of the Late Show's 'One Minute TV', and it's interesting to see how Kotting, whom many will know for much longer, languorous films, dealt with micro-duration. There are some familiar themes from his feature films: the hidden epicness of Britain's landscapes; near mythic roles played by everyday people; quotidian time versus universal time. An old hoary voice contrasts with the newness of a baby, a hundred years separating them. Hoi Polloi's images flicker like sentimental freckles on the screen.
