Movie Info

The city is already so vast and growing at such a speed that soon light itself will not escape its gravitational pull. How then can two lovers communicate, one from inside the city the other outside? This is an elegy to urban life, a portrait of a city of the future, constructed from moving images collected all around the world from science, technology, industry and architecture.

As a philosophical statement it lacks freshness, and voiceover artist Mark Caven's overcooked delivery doesn't help. One for fans of the form, perhaps.

Ambitious, gorgeous, and often as impenetrable as an algebraic equation.

Mostly predictable pessimistic stuff, lacking anything humane (in the manner of say Julien Temple's recent film London: The Modern Babylon) or informed by Dickensian gusto.

Perhaps it's a nightmarish vision of a world gone askance. Whatever it is, Babeldom is a visual treat.

Paul Bush's debut feature-length film is a fascinating meditation on the cities of the future.

Invigorating, challenging and extremely provocative. And extremely articulate to boot!
