Tara Brady Irish Times As with Kate McCullough's exemplary gliding camerawork for The Quiet Architect, [director Christopher Ian] Smith uses graceful Steadicam and elegant composition to find beauty in brutalist forms. Rated: 4/5 Jun 18, 2018 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Consistently fascinating, timely and only slightly repetitive, this comprehensive documentary about postwar town planning unfolds like a warning from history. Rated: 4/5 May 4, 2018 Full Review Malika Kingston Little White Lies An inspirational film about the power of art, but slow moving and a little forgettable. Rated: 3/5 May 4, 2018 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia It's a fascinating portrait of the rise and fall of a community and a movement. Nov 8, 2018 Full Review Stephanie Watts One Room With A View It is an honest, hopeful examination of the history and potential future of the places we choose to call home. Rated: 4/5 Aug 24, 2018 Full Review Andy Lea Daily Express (UK) This thoughtful documentary examines the dreams of British post-war town planners through the story of Basildon in Essex, a town so perfectly designed that they did not bother with a train station.
